In this major book, Griselda Pollock engages boldly in the culture wars over `what is the canon?` and `what difference can feminism make?` Do we simply reject the all-male line-up and satisfy our need for ideal egos with an all women litany of artistic heroines? Or is the question a chance to resist the phallocentric binary and allow the ambiguities and complexities of desire - subjectivity and sexuality - to shape the readings of art that constantly displace the present gender demarcations?

About the Author:

Griselda Pollock is Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art, and Director of the Centre for Cultural Studies, at the University of Leeds.

Review:

..."Pollock deesentializes the category "woman," here well described as a fiction of the canon that erases class and race in the modernist movement--a rubbing-out that feminist art history can write back in."
-"SIGNS
"[A] keen critique of the canon as a gendered and gendering institution intent on excluding those who differ from its hegemonic structure of European male power."
-" RACAR
"The flow of the book is wondrous, as Pollack builds each new idea onto the next, rounded out with rigorous research."
-"Foreword, 4/99
..."a densely woven text of art, literature, history, and theory... powerful... rewarding."
-Steven Z. Levine, Bryn Mawr College, "Woman's Art Journal, Spring/Summer 2001
