Many works, especially in the folk arts, are frequently attributed to a mysterious "Anonymous." Collectors and other patrons are usually content with the knowledge that the creator's identity was simply lost to time. Portrait of an Artist: Anonymous Was a Woman (part of the The Originals: Women in Art series) contends that the originator of the pieces was most often a woman, and a skilled and highly creative one at that. This program shows that though never singled out for fame or lauded for the endeavors, these silent women nevertheless achieved remarkable designs and imminently useful items for use in and around the home.
