Marie Antoinette is a beautiful and exemplary print from Chicago’s Great Ladies series from 1973, which, predicting The Dinner Party, depicts famous women as abstracted, vulvic fields of color alongside text. Chicago’s handwriting that frames the image reads, “Marie Antoinette—during her reign women artists enjoyed great success. But the French Revolution—which brought democracy to men—caused women artists to lose their status while the Queen lost her head.” It is more crucial than ever to remember how often social progress for the majority often comes at the expense of others.
