INTERNATIONAL MAIL ART PROJECT
The disobedient
Tribute to six great artists of art history


In the book "Le disobedient" published by Mondadori / le Contrails, writer Elisabetta Rasy tells the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, Elisabeth Vigee le Brun, Berthe Morisot, Suzanne Valadon, Charlotte Salomon, Frida Kalo. Six different women, from different period of history, of family situation, and in character. United however by talent and the will not to bend to the rules imposed by the society of their time, rules penalising and marginalising women. In the portraits that Elisabetta Rasy draws of each of them, what emerges is the strength and passion with which they fought and won hard battles to establish themselves. Despite bans, obligations, misunderstandings and prejudices. The work of these artists has forever changedthe place of the woman in the world of art.

You are kindly invited to send your work to pay tribute to these six extraordinary women and artists who, as Elisabetta Rasy writes, armed with a special quality of the soul, counter images of their fragility and counter the assaults of life.

I just googled the museum, and there's a Wikipedia page. It's in Italian but the browser's translation into English is good (my Italian's real beginner level). And photos are photos!

Jennifer, the brown/gold one is very nice. Would you mind sending me a link to their website either in a comment here or a message?

Thanks!

I decided in the end to send them the brown / gold one. I looked the place up online: the museum has a website and I thought that one fitted the ambiance best!

I wish I'd got my act together earlier for this one - it looks a great exhibitions space and archive, and I really like the project.

Aw, thanks, Jennifer. I had a lot of fun creating it. I have also shared the details of the event in several mail art groups on Facebook. Hoping many will see and some will participate.

Carmen - You're not alone in liking that colourway most. The deep plum-y red comes from one of the dresses in the original painting - - but so does the browny-gold.

I quite like the violet one...for some reason my eye can see more detail in that one.

I recently made a linocut based on one of Artemisia Gentileschi's paintings, so I'm going to send that to them - but which colour?
