The article includes the bulk of the results of the research conducted in 1998 on the social status of female artists in the Republic of Croatia (doctoral thesis). The typology based on the ancient Greek mythology (the Muses, the Nymphs, Eurynome) in the manner of Weber’s ideal types enables the manifestation of diverse forms of female identity. Female artists recognize and distinguish two dimensions of power: the will for power (Nietzsche, Hegel) and the power for women (N. Hartsock). This recognition is demonstrated by a contradictory and ambivalent understanding of this notion, in fact by its redefinition (“the struggle with ease”, they are and are not fighters), by the salient distancing from the will for power and the assertion of the power for women. Some female artists recognize the importance of gender for success in the world of art but an equal number of them don’t. However, the majority think that awards, juries’ decisions, the opinion of the public and the critics do not depend on an artist’s gender. Those among them who are aware of the importance of gender for success and recognition, think that women are in an inferior position.
