This special issue of Women’s Studies will examine the woman art collector.
While there are certainly women collectors whose interests tend toward more feminine-associated artifacts, such as jewels, fans, and lace, or work with domestic affiliations, such as embroidery, textiles, furniture, and glasswork, there are also women collectors who have ventured into new areas, amassing collections that in some cases make them the twentieth century creators of museums.
Paintings and sculptures of women have long been objects of the collector’s desire: what happens to this gendered dynamic when the collector is a woman? Is the drive to collect necessarily a masculine quality? What, if anything, is it to collect like a woman? Can collections be distinctively feminine? To what extent does a collection reflect its collector? What ethnic or feminist lenses may be applied to our understand of these collections?
