Is it still easier for women to be in the painting instead of the featured artist in a solo show? Although the last decade has seen an increase in museums’ exhibitions of women’s art, the commercial auction and private collector art markets have yet to experience an equilibrium in pricing.
Guerilla Girls founder, Frida Kahlo, notes “it is better than ever for women at the emerging level” but warns “when one travels up art world ladder of success, there is a crushing glass ceiling. Women only get so far, especially at that level of economics”.
International gallery owner and dealer, Iwan Wirth, still calls women artists “the bargains of our time”. So, if we still equate price with worth, does women’s art come with a discount sticker? Are prices the only indication of the artists value?
