Who and What is an Artist?

The woman in the kitchen

A case model:

Clem Greenberg (anti-)theses

“Abstract expressionism,” wrote poet and curator Frank O’Hara, “is the art of serious men.” Men is the key word. He also said, in 1954, that without its adventurous spirit, “we would have been given over to a cult of mechanics, of know-how … which cannot be confused with creation”

Lee Krasner’s first ever solo exhibition was at Betty Parsons in 1951. The show received very little attention in the press; not even Rosenberg or Greenberg (who was a close friend to Pollock and Krasner) bothered to review it.

Judith Godwin in 1959: “I had so many guys tell me in the ’50s that women just could not paint.”
Moreover, the institutional power structures that Nochlin argued made it “impossible for women to achieve artistic excellence, or success, on the same footing as men, no matter what the potency of their so-called talent, or genius,” have been shifting.
