Historically, Western art has yielded few examples of great women artists. The Artist Was a Woman uncovers the works of several gifted women, while exploring why talent such as theirs was so often overlooked. It shares a history of denying women admission to art school and forbidding their study of the human figure. It also chronicles a legacy of male art historians failing to take these artists' work seriously and denying them the recognition they deserved.
Rosa Bonheur, Mary Cassatt, and Georgia O'Keeffe bear witness to the fact that talent knows no gender. Jane Alexander reads from letters and diaries and Germaine Greer provides wry social commentary that rounds out the portrait of art's accomplished other half.
