Summary/Abstract: Creating a work of art from the past to the present has always been a challenging process. If we look at this situation from a social point of view, the accessibility of art materials and the sensitivity and interest of the society in the field of art have played a role as slowing factors in the development of art. Along with such negative situations, especially female artists have been forced to stay in the background more than male artists due to both social and political situations. Women have not been able to represent themselves and take important positions in the history of art for centuries. Because of income inequality, society’s masculine idea of power and women’s workload in their private lives, it took until the 1960s for women to make their name known in the art world. While the radical revolutions in the 19th century and the new currents of thought that emerged as a result of these revolutions deeply affected art, feminist art emerged that affected the place and role of women in art. This movement aimed to emphasize the concepts of equality and freedom. Feminist art, which is seen as a revolutionary rebellion rather than a certain style, emphasizes the political and social differences that women artists are exposed to, while aiming to get rid of any discrimination. Since the Renaissance period, while women have been used as materials in art with their bodies and sexuality, they have begun to worry about entering the world of art as an “artist” with feminist art. In other words, women embarked on the adventure of seeking their own individuality within the feminist movement, thus the transition process of women from the object position under the pressure of the masculine power to the woman as the subject began in the history of art. In this paper, within the scope of both gallerists and collectors, the position, importance and changing role of the female artist in the process are examined, and the differences of being a female artist in the art market are emphasized by emphasizing the female artists who make-produce and sell.
