Summary
In this survey of the achievement of women artists, the author evaluates and presents examples of the painting and sculpture of nearly 100 artists and provides information on many others, delineating the social and cultural context in which their work has been produced. Each chapter opens with an introduction to a period, with particular reference to women's education, status and accepted roles at the time, as well as to the possibilities open - and closed - to the incipient woman artist. A section devoted to each important artist includes a biography and a discussion of the artist's work and its significance to the period
