Sylvia Gosse in The Obstacle Race


The Printer by Sylvia Gosse

Many people admire this painting above all others in the Swindon collection and I was interested to find it in Germaine Greer's book "The Obstacle Race'. An interesting read that many might find dated seeing that woman artists are more widely represented in galleries and the media.  Although opportunities have increased and we do see more high profile women in the arts it is surprising that there are not more when you visit art schools and galleries around the country to find that the male to female ratio not over weighted with men.
