Kathleen Gilje holds BFA from the City College of New York; she later studied 16th & 17th c. Italian Art and Conservation at the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples, Italy, 1967-71. In her paintings, Gilje employs “a tour de force of technical bravura” (Linda Nochlin, Art in America, 2002) revisiting some of the iconic works of Western art while subverting their meaning with feminist and ecological perspective. Gilje had solo exhibitions at the Bruce Museum, Greenwich, CT; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington D.C.; List Visual Arts Center at MIT, Cambridge, MA; and University of Rochester, NY. Her works are in the collections of the National Portrait Gallery and National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC; Yale University Art Gallery; Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, MA; Musée Ingres, Louvre Museum, Montauban, France; and Bass Museum, Miami, FL.
