About the Author:

Linda Nochlin is Distinguished Professor of Art History at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. She has taught at Columbia University, Stanford University, Williams College, and Hunter College.

From Publishers Weekly:

In nine essays accompanied by 62 plates, Nochlin ( Women, Art, and Power ) incisively questions the canonization of artists while examining the subordination of women as reflected in Western painting. She reminds us that the term "avant-garde" was once applied to Gustave Courbet's militantly radical realism. She laments Degas's "simpleminded anti-Semitism," yet finds that his prejudice, with a few flagrant exceptions, had little or no effect on his art. She traces a latent ideology of male domination and colonialism in the artificial orientalism of Eugene Delacroix and Jean-Leon Gerome. In the Belgian Leon Frederic's proletarian triptych Stages of a Worker's Life she perceives a reactionary clinging to fatalistic religious beliefs. Other pieces deal with Seurat, Manet, Pissarro, Puerto Rican realist painter Francisco Oller, and French reporter-illustrator Paul Renouard, whose drawing of long-suffering weavers influenced Van Gogh.
