I am an artist interested in how language defines the image of women
portrayed an art and women artitsts. I want to study how the etymology of
several words exclude her from the definition of artist and limit ther to
being an object on display. However, I am not a linguist and I was
wondering if anyone might be able to help me. I think that from the
histories of grammer and glamour it is evident that the patriarchal culture
continues: man acts; woman is acted upon; hero saves heroine. The muse
of the artistic genius is a fetished female fantasy. I don't want to
intrude on your listserve, but I have been following it since last spring
and I find it very interesting and informative. Thanks for your time and
