What We Want, an essay about art and life

The most recent issue of Feminist Studies is carrying an art essay, "What We Want," about two Danish women painters, Emilie Mundt and Marie Luplau (early teachers of Demant Hatt). Ardent feminists and terrific painters who ran a school that taught 400 women art students in Copenhagen from the late 19th century through the early 20th, they deserve to be better known. Feminist Studies has also beautifully reproduced some of each of their paintings on the cover and inside.

What We Want, by the way, was the name of a women's newspaper in Denmark in the 1880 and 90s.
