As a child, I thought that there were only men artists in the Time-Life books about artists because it was harder for men to make art, like elephants making art is special. Later I learned in school that there were no great women artists. That confused me. Since I knew it wasn't true, I would figure out later what that was all about. Then in the 1970's the rewrite of art his-story began. Recently, a student brought this new piece in the rewrite to my attention. Hilma of Klimt (1862 - 1944), before Wassily K. and his buddies!!! Swedish. Hilma credits mystical, spiritual sources just as the guys do.
