Event Description

This study day will bring together four young art historians, based at the University of Glasgow, to discuss the risqué, acabre, surreal, and lyrical contributions that women have made to the history of photography, both before and behind the lens. Join Stills for this lively 'show and tell' session featuring rare and familiar images by Victorian Punch cartoonist Linley Sambourne and little-known Weimar Berliner Marta Astfalck-Vietz, as well as French Surrealist Claude Cahun and American prodigy Francesca Woodman.
