Changes to the Prints Agreement As part of a general review of the Prints Program we noticed that the Prints Agreement needed clarity.We changed the way in which we describe pricing because we have changed the way in which pricing is displayed during the submission process. We also wanted to clearly explain the impact of promotional offers on the Artist Profit. More than two years ago we blended the Premium Print Program with the Premium Membership (they used to be different). We have now updated the language in order to better distinguish the differences between Premium and Standard Print Program features in the Prints Agreement.Finally, we fixed some word choices and grammar to make the Agreement a better read.To compare the new Prints Agreement with the former Prints Agreement click here. (We've provided you with a helpful document that shows all of the language that has

Celebrating Women's History: Feminist ArtThe "Feminist art movement" began in the early 1960s. Women’s roles were questioned in society and thus were questioned in art in an article by Linda Nochlin called “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” She argued that there were few women artists because they were held back by a system that denied them equal opportunity (academies and guilds). Also in a society in which the home was run and child rearing was done entirely by women, women did not have the opportunity to engage in academia or the arts. Generally, if women were artists, they had to have male family members representing or teaching them. Painting was the only subject a woman could engage in, but nude models were forbidden for female painters, thus never reaching complete potential for academy standards. Italian Baroque painter Artemsia Gentileschi was one of the few female artists who was able to rise
