The information in this book should be in every Art History 101 text book, but unfortunately it isn't! It does read like a good text book and there are lots of illustrations (although there could be lots more). Chadwick is in expert in her field. Anyone interested in Art History should know what this book covers...

Format: Paperback
This was a brilliant Study that highlights the achievement of often neglected female artists. Chadwick's approach does not only look at the artist themselves, but she delves into their specific works to unveil the mask of what has been viewed with a gender bias eye. It takes a look at art dating back from the middle ages, up until now. Definitely a phenomenal piece and very well written.

If you enjoyed this as much as I have, I would recommend checking out, Who Does She Think She Is? Its a documentary about 5 women who struggle to balance time between artistic expression and practical living in a world where most people cannot name 1 single female artist.

Women, Art and History are not my favorite subjects, so when I saw a little of both crammed into a text book, I was less than excited. However, this book contains tons of information. The layout of the text is easy to follow and the small compact size makes it easy to tote around. I'd recommend this book for someone who wants a little more than the basics on Women, Art and History. This book is a great reference to use for research.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book may be impressive to Ms. Chadwick's colleagues but it leaves a lot to be desired as a teaching/learning tool. It rambles on and on in complex and odd vocabulary that requires a dictionary on hand for even an avid reader. There is a lot of name dropping but not much in the way of explanation of concepts or descriptions of artwork. It lacks terribly in informative content. This is not a book for someone whose goal is to obtain clear information and get a thorough understanding of feminist art.
