Sample Text
In the early nineteenth century the academy system was introduced in America to regulate artistic patronage and production. It was based on the English academy and as such established standards for training artists, although women were not allowed. However, between 1800 and 1860, many women bucked society's restrictions on their gender and became successful, professional artists. Through the nineteenth century women increasingly challenged the notion that woman's place was still in the home by applying to the American academies in growing numbers. By the end of that century women were represented in all of the major artistic academies in the US.
