20 tree paintings by women artists – Plant Curator

See on Scoop.itSoup for thought

Séraphine de Senlis – L’arbre de paradis (ca. 1930).


Part one of a two-part series of tree paintings. Today we feature female painters and then on Monday it’s the men. The aim is to show comparative renderings of these spectacular plants by some of the most renowned female artists ever. Although we have numbered them, this is not a rank, just a way to keep order. We have tried to choose artworks where trees are the main subject. Finding twenty by women was as hard as reducing to twenty those by men, of which there are seemingly hundreds available to view online. It’s just not right. Today we put the women first on Plant Curator. Please let us know of others and your favourites.
