Representing Women

(No reviews yet)

In this republication, revisit the late Linda Nochlin’s pioneering writings on the representation of women in art.

Women―as warriors, workers, mothers, lovers―haunt nineteenth and twentieth-century Western painting. This republication of Representing Women  brings together the late Linda Nochlin’s most important and pioneering  writings on the representation of women in art as she considers works by  Jean-Francois Millet, Eugene Delacroix, Gustave Courbet, Edgar Degas,  Georges Seurat, Mary Cassatt, and Kathe Kollwitz, among many others. In a  riveting, partly autobiographical introduction, Nochlin argues for the  honest virtues of an art history that rejects methodological  presuppositions and for art historians to investigate the work before  their eyes while focusing on its subject matter, informed by a  sensitivity to its feminist spirit. 170 illustrations
