The definitive work on the subject, mapping a complete history of women artists from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to today

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 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. This revised edition features a new final chapter that charts the evolution of feminist art history and pedagogy since the 1970s. It is brought up to date with discussions of some of the most significant women artists to have emerged in recent years, including Wangechi Mutu, Jenny Saville, and Teresa Margolles. 332 illustrations, 124 in color

About the Author:

Whitney Chadwick is an art historian. She is the author of Women Artists and the Surrealist Movement and Women, Art and Society.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Like many women artists of the time, Gentileschi and Sirani were the daughters of painters. Orazio Gentileschi was one of the most important of Caravaggio's followers; Giovanni Andrea Sirani a pupil and follower of Reni, and an artist of considerably less interest than his daughter. Gentileschi is the first woman artist in the history of Western art whose historical significance is unquestionable. In the case of Sirani, her early death has prevented a full evaluation of her career despite her evident fame during her life. Sirani's father took all of her income from a body of work which she herself, following a custom gaining favor during the seventeenth century, catalogued at 150 paintings, a figure now considered too low. Despite her catalogue, no monograph exists and her reputation has suffered from an over-attribution of inferior works in Reni's style to her.
