Trade Paperback New 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.

Overview

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 amounts to much more than an alternative canon of women artists: it 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 the most recent developments in contemporary art. Chadwick considers how women's art in the twenty-first century is characterized by a renewed focus on the personal and the intimate, alongside an interest in more global issues. She also discusses some of the ways recent women artists have revisited and at times subverted earlier feminist strategies.

The place of women in the history of Western art remains controversial. In this brilliant and eagerly awaited study, Chadwick explores the issues relating to the conditions under which women have worked as artists from the Middle Ages to the present. Illustrated.
