Le Disobbedienti – A tribute to six great artists of art history
In the book “Le Disobbedienti” published by Mondadori / Le Scie, the writer Elisabetta Rasy tells the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun, Berthe Morisot, Suzanne Valadon, Charlotte Salomon and Frida Kalo. Six different women from age to age, family situation, character. However, they share the talent and the will to not bow to the rules imposed by the society of their time, penalizing and marginalizing rules for women. In the portrait-tale that Elisabetta Rasy portrays each of them, the boldness with which they fought and won the hard battle to assert themselves emerges with strength and passion. Despite the prohibitions, obligations, misunderstandings and prejudices. These artists have forever changed the image and place of women in the art world with their work.
