The Artist was a Lady: Works by the Fair Sex.

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I had no words for." Georgia O'Keeffe.
"I find that women can be creative in total isolation. I know excellent women artists who do original work without any response to speak of. Maybe they are used to a lack of feedback. Maybe they are tougher." Elaine de Kooning
