Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A long-needed corrective and alternative view of Western art history, these seventeen essays by respected scholars are arranged chronologically and cover every major period from the ancient Egyptian to the present. While several of the essays deal with major women artists, the book is essentially about Western art history and the extent to which it has been distorted, in every period, by sexual bias. With 306 illustrations.

Synopsis:

A long-needed corrective and alternative view of Western art history that discusses the extent to which art has been distorted, in every period, by sexual bias.
