About Nancy Spero

Nancy Spero (American, 1926-2009) was a painter, collage-maker, printmaker and installation artist, creating "peinture féminine" (feminine painting) that could address, and redress, both the struggles of women in patriarchal societies and the horrors perennially wrought by the American military. Executed with a raw intensity on paper and in ephemeral installations, her work often draws its imagery and subject matter from current and historical events. Spero samples from a rich range of visual sources of women as protagonists, from Egyptian hieroglyphics, seventeenth-century French history painting and Frederick’s of Hollywood lingerie advertisements. Spero received honorary doctorates from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1991 and Williams College in 2001. The artist was also awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the College Art Association, and was inducted as a member of the American Academy of Arts in 2006.
