Humanities Edge Undergraduate Research Symposium | Spring 2021

Abstract

This paper seeks to examine the accomplishments of women throughout Chinese art history and compare them to that of women throughout Western art history. Through research  centering on women’s artistic practice  in traditional and modern China, , it was found that  Chinese women artists have been significantly more welcome in the art world than women in the West historically. However, these Chinese female artists received little accolades or study until the 20th century. Female artists such as Guan Daosheng, the most famous female artist and calligrapher in Chinese history, who was considered to be a master, and Chen Shu, who established a generational tradition of art in her family, are both women in Chinese art history who have influenced later artists themselves. This essay asserts the importance and the talent of these female artists and the need to rethink art history to be more inclusive of them and their achievements.
