Join renowned cultural historian Rosamund Bartlett for this four-week lecture series at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

The story of modern art as conventionally told inevitably runs from Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne through to Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Marcel Duchamp and Salvador Dalí.

Over four weeks, Rosamund Bartlett, will paint a new picture of avant-garde experimentation before and after World War One by showcasing the lives and careers of the many unsung female artists who also contributed to the European Modernist movement. They include Berthe Morisot, Hilma af Klint, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Helen Saunders, Sonia Delaunay and Sophie Taeuber-Arp.

Rosamund Bartlett is a cultural historian with a background in Russia and Eastern Europe whose current interests focus on modernism, opera and the intersection between politics, history and the arts. She has lectured widely at galleries in the UK, including the V&A and the Ashmolean, written for both The Burlington Magazine and Apollo, and in 2020 contributed an article to the catalogue of Tate Britain’s Aubrey Beardsley exhibition.
