YOU CAN BUY A WHOLE COLLECTION OF WORK BY WOMEN ARTISTS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE PAINTING BY A FAMOUS WHITE GUY
The glass ceiling is firmly in place in the art world, especially when the work of women artists comes up at auction. When we did this poster in 1989, we wanted to make art collectors nervous about their choices. We also wanted them to know what a bargain the art of women is! Things are a little bit better now—the work of Tina Modotti and Frida Kahlo have broken sales records—but not much.
