Die Malweiber

 Die Malweiber, 1900. Women in Germany with artistic ambitions, mostly middle class, were denied admission to the painting schools so they formed their own groups. ‘Malweiber’ was a derogatory term applied to these fearless women.

"In the ultra-conservative German Empire it was considered indecent if women developed artistic ambition."

The images that follow depict women artists behaving indecently!
