Book News Annotation:
Challenging art historical assumptions that classify women artists, such as Artemisia Gentileschi, as exceptions who "transcended" their sex in achieving major works of art, Chadwick (art, San Francisco State U.) re-examines the works themselves and the ways in which they have been perceived as marginal. In her discussion of feminism and its influence on such a reappraisal, Chadwick brings her survey up to date in light of current research. Two new chapters focus on the work of contemporary artists whose work is consciously informed by feminism.
