The first comprehensive anthology of art historian Linda Nochlin’s work, including her landmark essays on the position and influence of women artists

Linda Nochlin is one of the most accessible, provocative, and innovative art historians of our time. In 1971 she published her essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?”―a dramatic feminist call-to-arms that called traditional art historical practices into question and led to a major revision of the discipline.

Women Artists brings together twenty-nine essential essays from throughout Nochlin’s career, making this the definitive anthology of her writing about women in art. Included are her major thematic texts “Women Artists After the French Revolution” and “Starting from Scratch: The Beginnings of Feminist Art History,” as well as the landmark essay and its rejoinder “‘Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?’ Thirty Years After.” These appear alongside monographic entries focusing on a selection of major women artists including Mary Cassatt, Louise Bourgeois, Cecily Brown, Kiki Smith, Miwa Yanagi, and Sophie Calle.

Women Artists also presents two new essays written specifically for this book and an interview with Nochlin investigating the position of women artists today. 230 illustrations

About the Author:

Linda Nochlin is a highly celebrated feminist art historian. She is the Lila Acheson Wallace Professor of Modern Art Emerita at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Her major books include Courbet, Representing Women, and Women, Art, and Power.

Maura Reilly is founding curator of the Elizabeth Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, where she co-curated, with Linda Nochlin, the critically acclaimed exhibition, Global Feminisms (2007).

Review:

“Readers will be delighted by this opportunity to watch Nochlin’s ideas advance over the decades. . . . Nochlin is far from a one-note theorist; her concerns are varied and her thinking incisive.”
- Publishers Weekly

“Nochlin writes with a dazzling mix of erudition and candor, but what’s most remarkable about her work is that it’s driven by an exhaustive investigation as to why and how certain artworks have been meaningful to her. Meditations on fashion, exclusion, decoration, bodies and touch run throughout Nochlin’s work. Ideas arrived at through scholarship recur in personal correspondence and anecdote. None of these essays seem dated. An inventor of feminist art history, Nochlin took the ’60s precept that ‘the personal is political’ to heart, but it’s her commitment to clarity, investigation and active thought that makes her work so contemporary today.”
- The New York Times Book Review

“Perhaps the best introduction to art historical analysis on the ‘social construction’ of the women artist, Women Artists: The Linda Nochlin Reader is also an outstanding overview of feminist art practice since the 1970s ... an essential resource and a pleasure to read.”
- Women's Art Journal

Book Description Thames & Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Linda Nochlin is one of the most prolific, intellectually accessible and innovative art historians of our time. Since the publication of her seminal 1971 essay `Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?', she has continued to assess the social and institutional structures that have influenced the work made by women artists, and their professional and historical status. While anthologies of Nochlin's writing published to date have focused on specific subjects or periods, such as the 19th century, Women Artists brings together 29 essays in which she focuses on female artists and the key questions of women's roles and status in the arts. It includes both her major thematic texts and her monographic texts on major women artists, both historical and modern. An introduction by editor Maura Reilly provides an overview of Nochlin's life and work and an analysis of her impact and continuing influence on younger scholars and students, and a specially commissioned interview with Nochlin investigates the status of women artists today. Women Artists will be indispensible to students and academics working in the fields of art history and historiography, gender and women's studies, cultural history and theory.
