Women, Art & Society

A great find from a charity shop in Hampstead, London:

by Whitney Chadwick (publisher: Thames & Hudson NY, 1990)

Cover: Detail of Reflection, by Gabriele Munter (1917)

Chapters include:

Renaissance Florence and Women Artist

Amateurs and Academics: A New Ideology of Femininity in France and England

Separate but Unequal: Women's Sphere and The New Art

If we would like to change History, it is a great start to try and understand it.

In this blog I intend to do some historical justice to the many, many women who have contributed with their genius, creativity, adventurous spirit, nurturing - amongst other qualities - to the apparent linear and male dominated prescribed notion of History. This is just the beggining.
