Women artists do it better in contemporary art?

Recent studies published on national Geographic affirm that also in ancient times the most part of the artistic expression was made by women. How is the situation now?
LAS VEGAS - Jan. 20, 2014 - PRLog -- Women made most of the oldest-known cave art paintings, suggests a new analysis of ancient handprints. Most scholars had assumed these ancient artists were predominantly men, so the finding overturns decades of archaeological dogma, as stated in National Geographic.

But the most part of the history of art, at least the academic one, is focused on male artists and women are quite exceptional.

There are a few examples in the history of art of great women artists, like Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 – c. 1656): she was an Italian Baroque painter, today considered one of the most accomplished painters in the generation following that of Caravaggio. In an era when women painters were not easily accepted by the artistic community or patrons, she was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence.

During the XX century various women artists become famous, like Frida Kahlo and others.

Nowadays we see more and more women in the contemporary art world and we present on http://www.vecchiatoarte.com a selection of them, like Rabarama, Pellin, Papas and Masha K. Trotzky, with their different styles and unicity
