CHOICE Review

For approximately two decades, feminists have been attempting to create and maintain a place for women artists in mainstream art historical literature; Whitney Chadwick succeeds in this endeavor through a modified approach. She integrates women's roles in society with art history because, philosophically, there is no progressive history of women artists. As Chadwick unequivocably states, "the historical and critical evaluation of women's art has proved to be inseparable from ideologies which define her sic place in Western culture generally." The volume uses as an outline the standard art historical time periods as chapters; these are documented through the works of women painters, sculptors, architects, decorative artists, and performance artists, and with works depicting significant individual females. Since it seeks to summarize the existing literature presented from a cultural standpoint, this book emerges as an ideal source for students and scholars alike. Numerous illustrations and an extensive bibliography supplement the text. L. Doumato National Gallery of Art
