So what do Michelangelo, Leonardo Davinci, Vincent Van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso all have in common? Well, apparently, they’re the only artists anyone wants to talk about.
Oh, and they’re all (long) dead white guys.
If you go by the art curriculums in most classrooms, artists are mostly old, white, male, and dead. They mostly painted horseback riding, war, and nude ladies. You have to pay $35 to go to a museum and see their artwork.
This isn’t to say that there’s no value in Old Masters’ paintings, but rather that it’s already been pretty well established. In fact, I’d say it’s been beaten to death.
It’s time to move on!
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of amazing artists from diverse backgrounds out there, living and dead, who we should be learning from. In fact, at IPaintMyMind, we believe that representation and diversity in art history and art education has the power to inspire, connect, and empower.
