The database is intended to provide a research tool that brings together the growing body of literature about women artists who worked in Canada and who were born before 1925. It covers women who worked in diverse mediums, ranging from painting and sculpture to photography and textiles. In addition to a brief biographical sketch, each entry comprises a bibliography of writings about the artist and, in cases where women artists have authored works, a separate bibliography of their writings. Locations of artists' files are indicated, as well as their association memberships.
The Canadian Women Artists History Initiative is a newly founded collaborative endeavour that brings resources and researchers together to enhance scholarship on historical women artists in Canada. Our focus is on the period prior to 1967.
