Are Men Naturally More "Artistically Creative" than Women?

People says that women are more in touch with their emotions. Expressing emotions better than men, they also said that women can freely express their emotions by any means. They talk, work and act based on their emotions. And, Emotions plays a big part of being "Artistically Creative". But, virtually all art forms today and throughout the history are and have been dominated by men. Are Men naturally more artistically creative than women? What can you say about this?

Well you raise a good point, in stating that men had dominated the history of art. However, I think for that reason men have dominated over history was because of how were perceived. I feel that, yes, women can express themselves in any form, but men and women are in equal in doing so. It is just the fact that women in society expressing emotion is more accepted than for men.

second time grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. no men are not more artistically talentet than men, down through history women have been stopped by the men from freely pursing their art work, and just in the last few decades women's talent showed up very nicely thank you. if women did not predominate its only because egotistical men stopped them. No indeed women are just as creative and in some cases more as they cope with house and children and husbands that are not always at all appreciate and they rely on their artistic talent to make do with what they have.Women actually are much more creative than men even if they do not get their names down like Van gogh.

Don't think either Men or Women is more creative than the other. And as far as history goes , we Men being physically more powerful and aggressive, have kept women away from developing their creative side. They were to confine themselves to house hold activities, which by now I have realised that it cud take up the entire day to complete. So there was absolutely no chance for them to come up and display their creative side. So their creativity wud have reflected in other forms, like a clean household and good food for lifetime, parenting etc etc, Small things that we fail to register in History.

I don't really think so, because all my friend who is a girl got a LOT of creativity you won't believe how good their painting/drawing are. though, from the history side it is right that man is more creative than women (like DaVinci, Picasso, Plato?) ;)
