Tate Britain new exhibition will follow women on their journey to become professional artists across the span of 400 years.

From Tudor times to the First World War, these are the artists who forged a new path for generations of women. Artists such as Mary Beale, Angelica Kauffman, Elizabeth Butler and Laura Knight took part in public exhibitions and had commercial careers, challenging what it meant to be a working woman of their time.

Refusing to be boxed in, they daringly chose subjects that were usually reserved for male artists: history pieces, battle scenes and nudes.
