Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

An anthology of essays on women artists in the 20th century. The volume is introduced by an examination of the developments and methodologies within feminist art history and an outline of the broader connections between the issues raised by the individual essays. The contributors take a woman artist or group of women as a case study and, using examples from their lives and work, explore and question the interpretations of women and modernism and modernity.

Bibliography: pages [189]-198. - Includes index.
