Description - Women Artists:The Linda Nochlin Reader by Maura Reilly
Since the 1970s, Linda Nochlin has pioneered a radical approach to the history of art that focuses on the impact of gender on both the creation and the appreciation of art. This book features all her most important essays from the last forty years, whether on women artists or on the broader issues of women's role in the arts.
Included are her major thematic texts 'Women Artists After the French Revolution' and 'Starting from Scratch: The Beginnings of Feminist Art History', as well as her seminal 1971 essay 'Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?' and its rejoinder, published thirty years later.
The book's monographic essays focus on major women artists, including Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot, Louise Bourgeois, Cecily Brown, Joan Mitchell, Alice Neel, Kiki Smith, Liza Lou and Miwa Yanagi.
An introduction by Maura Reilly provides an overview of Nochlin's life and work and an analysis of her impact and continuing influence on younger scholars, and a specially commissioned interview with Nochlin investigates the status of women artists today.
