I am a A-level Art student currently in my final year preparing for my exam. I picked up 'A World of our own' a few weeks ago and have been reading and using it ever since. It has inspired me to continue my dream as an artist as it shows the revolution of women as Artists. It goes through the centuries looking at a collection of womens work from that period. I was fascinated by the modern work it reviewed including Paula Rego who is a particular favourite of mine. Women Artists everywhere should read this book It's brilliant!!!

Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book full of delicious, colour illustrations describing the tale of adversity faced and overcome by women artists from the sixteenth century up till the present day. It is broken down into 6 chapters:
1. Out of the Shadows - 1500 - 1600
2. The celebrated line of women artists - 1600 - 1750
3. Objects of fascination - 1750 - 1850
4. The Glory Days - 1850 - 1910
5. Profession: Artist - 1910 - 1970
6. The Feminist revolution - 1970 and after

A must for anyone interested in Art History as there are so many gaps in other histories where women artists are completely left out.
