Editorial Reviews

Christine Stansell
A particular sensibility, not a cumulative argument, loops the pieces in this book together, a perspective which combines erudition, ardor and hererodox opinion....Nochlin, with her sharp questions and peremptory demands that painters of modern life paint modern life in all its grand unease, gives the paintings a jolt.

Millard
While reading this stunning example of intellectual acumen, it's difficult not to feel as enriched and liberated by art as the fledgling Nochlin of thirty years ago, whose contagious passion still shines through today.
