There are many women artists in the history of archaeology, some of whom I've written about on this blog - Annie Quibell, Lena George, Jessie Mothersole, Freda Hansard, Mary Chubb.
In December (2015) I participated in a fascinating workshop, "Overlooked Women Artists and Designers 1851-1918" organised by the Tate's British Art Network. Speakers came together to present on various women artists, their work, networks, spaces and evidence of practice (such as Sally Woodstock's work on the women artists holding accounts at artists' colourman Charles Roberson & Co through the company's account book archive). My paper featured my continuing research on Jessie Mothersole.
We were subsequently invited to contribute short pieces based on our papers to a "Conversation" forum on the Paul Mellon Centre's new digital journal British Art Studies. The full (and ongoing) Conversation "Still Invisible?" begins with Patricia de Montfort and Robyne Erica Calvert's "Provocation". Pieces are still being published in subsequent waves. So, Jessie Mothersole is now featured amongst her fellow artist contemporaries once more. I'm sure she'd be pleased.
