Reviews provided by Syndetics
CHOICE ReviewWithin the surrealist movement women artists found more encouragement than they could find elsewhere. But they also found within surrealism idealized conceptions of women that hampered their full development as artists. Chadwick, who also wrote Myth in Surrealist Painting, 1929-1939 (1980), is perceptive and tactful in her discussion of these and other issues. (Many of the artists are still alive and have very strong opinions on their relationship to surrealism.) Unfortunately, the author did not solve the problem of integrating much-needed and little-known biographical information into thematic discussions: the text is very choppy. Nonetheless, the book will be valued for its intelligent and detailed discussion. It contains notes, a selected bibliography, and illustrations (200 black and white and 20 color). Recommended for graduate and undergraduate libraries, especially those with an interest in women's studies.-C. Stokes, Oakland University
