It seems a little disjointed that, although all the other women I illustrated have links with the UK*, the artist I was asked to draw has none.
Before the 20th century female artists were (even) more rarely successful but the nature of 20th Century art has been so much about transgression that it may have been difficult to choose a woman whose work is, at least at first glance, easy to look at (of course I'm aware that, if you look twice, Kahlo's art is as full of complication and disturbance as any other artist's).
My nomination would have been Louise Borgeouis with her 'Filette' tucked under her arm. No UK links there either - except her current retrospective at the Freud Museum.
Dora Carrington, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth, Ceri Richards, to Lucas, Emin, Dean etc. British or not - who would you choose?
