A collection of paintings and prints by the feminist artist and author, Kate Millett. These works were all from the personal collection of Cortland Jessup, owner of the Cortland Jessup Gallery in New York City.
Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Millett is most well known as the author of the groundbreaking book Sexual Politics and as a influential figure in the women's liberation movement. However, she was also an accomplished and prolific artist who worked in a variety of mediums including sculpture, printmaking, painting, and performance art. In 1978, Millett founded a self-supporting art colony and farm for women in Poughkeepsie, New York where most of the work we currently have was created.
