Abstract or Introduction
A closer look at the involvement of women in art collection history reveals a significant engagement of females throughout the centuries in different countries. Their engagement appeared in many forms, including women that were innovative in new ways of artistic expression, women as patrons, women as collectors, women as sources of inspiration, or others that became well-known contributors in the form of art historians and critics. However, most women still meet opposition similar to the traditional narrative setting of art in spite of their daily interaction with various forms of art. To be more precise, women face various challenges owing to gender biasing. These difficulties include a lack of training facilities, troubles in retailing their pieces, and refusal to show recognition for their artworks. One may, therefore, wonder how women have managed to declare themselves as such loud voices within art and in art history.
