The kicker

Affordable art by women. Collector Christian Levett The first museum in Europe dedicated to women artists was housed in a medieval building in Mougins in the south of France. Financial Times reports. The space previously welcomed visitors to Levett’s collection of antiques, which have been replaced by artworks by women, from 19th-century Impressionists to contemporary artists. After Levett began collecting modern and contemporary art by both men and women Joan Mitchell, Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, Cecily Brownet al., have been able to „put together a 'museum-quality collection’ of works by women artists, because 'the best works by women’ still sell for a fraction of the price of art by men,” he said. Progress, it seems, is slow, but it is certainly happening.
