1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. Mcdonald TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Nov. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is rather like one of those compilation books along the lines of "100 paintings you must see" or "50 artists you should know" or whatever; in this case 60 women artists are given a general two-page spread each - one page of explanatory text and one example of work, in some cases with a photograph of the artist alongside.

The book is a good solid hardback with 110 illustrations, 90 of which are in colour; the plates are of good size and reproduction quality, representing artists working in a wide range of media - from traditional painting to performance, photography and installation/multi-media. It is arranged by thematic chapters rather than chronologically or alphabetically and the artists featured date from the time of the Renaissance to the present.
My only gripe with the book is that for every artist included I could think of at least two others who weren't - this could easily have been three of four times bigger and still would have left out important figures.
The artists selected are a bit of a mixed bag, but it`s still a praiseworthy effort; there are sure to be a few artists you haven`t encountered before, even with some - I think - rather glaring omissions.

At current prices, it`s a decent addition to the library; it is by no means comprehensive and doesn't claim to be anything other than a general historic overview, but it is a nice and reasonably informative book to have. 3 ½ stars, ideally.

Mancoff's beautifully produced book is interesting and informative. It's lovely to own and I thoroughly recommend it to scholars and general readers interested in female artists.

Relating the trials and tribulations of woman artists through the ages. Even today such predudice still exists. Great to find them praised all in one book.

Sorely Needed! 11 Feb. 2014
By Susan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This text is one that should be included with all art history studies since the contents are unlikely to be included in any generalized texts which are typically based on the male history of art. With a few, very few, exceptions. Sadly.
