Power and Beautyby Georges Duby, Michelle Perrot
From antiquity to the present day, women have been represented in art in many guises---to characterize their beauty, their power as goddesses or monarchs, their religious fervor, their sexuality, their motherhood---and these images offer a fascinating insight into the history of women. This book is a study of the images of women which have been created by artists of many cultures over the centuries.
This book is a unique contribution to the iconography of women, and a beautiful collection of images of women drawn from the whole range of their experiences.
