Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party has been described as the Feminist equivalent of The Last Supper, and the most important work in the history of Feminist Art. This drawing served as a study for the Natalie Barney place setting at The Dinner Party, and
Natalie Barney was a woman scientist who, like Judy Chicago, was far ahead of her time and paved the way for women to enter the scientific field. This drawing is Judy Chicago’s design for the Natalie Barney plate in Chicago’s most famous work, The Dinner Party. The Dinner Party is widely regarded as the most important work in the history of Feminist Art, and resides in its own designated gallery at the Brooklyn Art Museum. This is an extremely rare work and is highly collectible.
