Refuse To Be The Muse
Discover new work by Saatchi Art's best-selling women artists
From Titian’s Venus to Picasso’s nudes, women historically have been relegated to the role of the muse rather than celebrated as artists in their own right. Despite gaining greater exposure in recent years, they continue to struggle for equal representation: women constitute only 30% of artists represented by U.S. galleries.
At Saatchi Art, we’re proud that 54% of our best-selling artists are women. As the world’s leading online art gallery, we’re uniquely positioned to provide them with an equal platform to share art with the global community. Join us in celebrating our top women artists, who refuse to be the muse and instead are creating some of the most vibrant and compelling art today.

Special Edition Artwork Commission: Kelly Puissegur
Saatchi Art commissioned Kelly Puissegur to create two original works prompted by the concept “Refuse to be the Muse”.
Saatchi Art curators spoke with critically-acclaimed artists about their process, inspiration, and the ways in which their identity as a woman is relevant to their art.
