Top 10 – Sexist Artworks




Visual Art has traditionally been one big boy’s club. Many critics, even today, overlook great women artists in favour of their less talented male counterparts. Outspoken artists such as the discredited, Georg Baselitz are dismissive of all art created by women. Meanwhile, misogynistic figures From Manet to Koons have degraded their models in the process of their practices, and all for the love of money. Some of the examples in this Top 10 feature are shocking, only by virtue that they were created, exhibited and sold in the artist’s lifetime. How did they get away with it? Welcome to Artlyst’s Top 10 Sexist Artworks!
