The CoUNTess email alert has been singing a questioning tune the last two days since the Archibald Portrait Prize finalists have been announced. "Is CoUNTess counting the Archibald?" they have asked. OMG is it that time of year again? The auditor has crunched the numbers from the last 10 years to share with you.
The question is - how many women artists have applied? We have requested these statistics from Art Gallery of New South Wales and hope to get an answer from them soon. We'll keep you posted.
