The definitive work on the subject, mapping a complete history of women artists from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to today.
This acclaimed study challenges the assumption that great women artists are exceptions to the rule who “transcended” their sex to produce major works of art.
While acknowledging the many women whose contributions to visual culture have often been neglected, this reexamines the works themselves and the ways in which they have been perceived as marginal, often in direct reference to gender.
