Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 since the Middle Ages have often been neglected, Whitney Chadwick's survey reexamines the works themselves and the ways in which they have been perceived as marginal, often in direct reference to gender. In her discussion of feminism and its influence on such a reappraisal, the author also addresses the closely related issues of ethnicity, class, and sexuality.

This expanded edition incorporates recent developments in contemporary art. Chadwick addresses the turn toward autobiography in much recent women's art. She considers issues such as the personal versus the political and the private versus the public, and analyzes the differences between women's art today and the seminal feminist work of the 1970s and 1980s.

Book News Annotation:

The third edition of Chadwick's (San Francisco State U., Calif.) classic text on women and art contains two new chapters, on globalization and a feminist perspective of international exhibitions of the 1990s. Theoretical approaches to feminist art history are carefully described in the introduction. The text surveys women in art and women making art from the Middle Ages through the present. The bibliography is organized by topic or artist for each chapter. Though organized chronologically, this is a substantial text, devoted to themes and issues more than personalities.
