Overview

"This text presents a survey of the contributions of women to the history of art. Organized chronologically, the book also examines the participation of women as patrons, critics, and viewers. Attention is paid to analysis and interpretation of images of women. Over 110 illustrations illuminate the ways in which visual representations participate in the construction of gender ideologies. Each topic is accompanied by an illustration so readers can actually see the visual image to aid in the learning process." "The text reflects the most recent and authoritative scholarship in this area. Updated bibliographies are provided to direct readers to this research. This volume provides a map for recent feminist scholarship. It will direct the reader to different methodologies employed by scholars in each period." "The new introduction provides the reader with an overview of the key theoretical concepts necessary for an understanding of the material. College students and their instructors can rely on Women Artists in History to provide a solid foundation of understanding of this academic discourse."--BOOK JACKET.
