After Jan Steen I start a new series of 10 images, in no real order this time. it is a question of drawing up each time a portrait of a woman, strong enough to affirm her identity in a world dominated by patriarchy. These women of different eras, origins, and different ages continue to fight for their visibility, despite prejudice. My list is not exhaustive, there is so much to say; likewise, the dominant male gaze remains on the lookout under the presence, in each image, of an invisible man, who retains a share of power. Finally, each painting chosen places this fight for better visibility for women in a history of art largely shaped by men. Thank you for the view and your comments.

Madeleine Brès a montré la route, mais la résistance des grands "pontes" a été forte.

C'est en réalité la première image que j'ai réalisé de la série. je me suis mis à dévorer les livres de Mona Chollet, journaliste au Monde diplomatique, sur les représentations de la femme, liées au patriarcat. Des siècles de constructions intellectuelle et culturelle pour invisibiliser les femmes ou les diaboliser. Le tableau de Jan Steen où la jeune femme se pâme devant les yeux du médecin pour on ne sait qu'elle fiction de maladie, est une représentation qui a fait son temps. J'y oppose une femme médecin (je l'imagine professeure ou spécialiste) tandis que l'homme invisible est relégué au rang de patient, qui se tient prostré dans sa chemise d'hôpital.

This one has particular resonance, as my Mother was a doctor in the Middle East back at a time when women didn't work let alone have university degrees and practice medicine!

This is information that makes me very happy, I like when an image touches its viewers beyond what its designer thought of it.

As a retired health care provider (primary care nurse practitioner) I love the woman here. It cracks me up that the invisible man (who is invisible, after all) is still covering his private parts. I find it interesting that the Jan Steen picture you shared in the background has roles reversed with woman as patient and a male physician. In that picture, the vague expression on the woman's face makes me thinks she is patiently enduring the doctor in whom she has little faith.

Thanks for sharing this one really touched me as I worked providing primary medical care for more than half my career (about 30 years).

Once again your interpretation of my image is very fair, especially with regard to the invisible man (a way of weakening a patriarchal vision which attributes power to men in the field of science). It's my turn to be touched by the echoes you saw between my image and part of your biography, just as Joe had told me too.
