Ways of Seeing is a 1972 BBC four-part television series of 30 minute films created chiefly by writer John Berger and producer Mike Dibb. Berger’s scripts were adapted into a book of the same name. The series and book criticize traditional Western cultural aesthetics by raising questions about hidden ideologies in visual images. The series is partially a response to Kenneth Clark's Civilisation series, which represents a more traditionalist view of the Western artistic and cultural canon.

Women Painting Women is an online resource highlighting women artists working in the figurative tradition. The website arose out of online discussions about how contemporary women artists are handling women as subjects. Inspired by these discussions but failing to find any single, comprehensive online resource cataloguing contemporary women artists painting the female figure, artists Sadie Valeri, Alia El-Bermani, and Diane Feissel established the site in March of 2009; since then the site has featured the work of more than 260 women painters from around the globe. Out of the overwhelming positive response to the website grew a desire to create opportunities for women artists from diverse locations to gather and share inspiration and technique, and to promote and exhibit their work Unfortunately we currently are not accepting new nominations, as we have a very long list waiting to be posted. Thank you so much to everyone who sent us links to review, we are as thrilled as our visitors to discover so many amazing women artists!
