Frame her: an illustrator honours female artists – in pictures

When studying the different art movements, Argentinian illustrator Juliana Vido became exasperated by the focus on male artists: “They’re always the known faces of art. Women only get recognition after decades of work, often in old age.” This was the spur for her series of illustrations honouring female artists in their studios.

Vido admires all the artists in the series, but admits her favourite is Lee Krasner : “I’m in love with her work, her use of colour and dynamic shapes. During her lifetime, she was in her husband, Jackson Pollock’s, shadow. She’s now getting a lot of recognition; too bad she’s not here to see it.”
