Complete an analytical response that represents artistic portrayals of women in art.
Introduce and describe each piece then describe the changes in the portrayal of women as evidenced in these three pieces. Be specific. Consider that for most of the history of art, male artists had the opportunity to interpret, celebrate, denigrate, reinvent and or comment on women through their portrayals. You are welcome to draw upon feminist theory, etc. to assist you if you wish. Summarize your observations in a concluding paragraph. I have chosen these three paintings attached in the file.
