‘A Woman’s Worth’: Male conceptions of feminine beauty | Arts & Culture

In a series of paintings curated by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, male artists portray women in a multitude of different ways. Yet one thing remains the same — all of the women are being looked upon and depicted in a passive manner.  

 “A Woman’s Worth,” a virtual exhibit at the JSMA, provides a feminist theory lens to these classic paintings by male artists.

‘Paris to Hollywood’ Puts Iconic Couple’s Fashion Sense On Display At Denver Art Museum

“I discovered this huge collection that she has kept not only of several hundred dresses, but also documents and photography. All sorts of souvenirs about her mother and her father as well,” she said.
