Auction is latest in a raft of exhibitions and sales to promote women artists.The highest price at auction for a work by the French sculptor Germaine Richier is £1.2m, compared with £91.6m for Alberto Giacometti, who studied alongside Richier in Émile-Antoine Bourdelle’s studio in the 1920s. Such disparity between artists of similar expertise is all too common in the art market, and something that Bonhams is hoping to redress next month by including more female artists in its post-war and contemporary sale.
