Books By Author Linda Nochlin

Heights of Fashion by Linda Nochlin Heights of Fashion, Paperback (May 2008)

Drawing on historical sources, paintings and prints, this volume explores how and why shoes or boots with high heels came into common use. It considers the function of high heels in daily life, in the production of class and gender, and in the staging of erotic fantasy.

Courbet by Linda Nochlin Courbet, Paperback (January 2007)

Gustave Courbet is arguably the most radical of all 19th-century painters and one of the fathers of modern art. This book presents various aspects of his oeuvre, from his vast realist depictions of provincial French life, allegorical works, and paint-encrusted landscapes to his dark, brooding portraits, sensual nudes and earthy still lifes.
