2.0 out of 5 stars Book on art or feminism?, 21 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book in order to have an overview of the most important trends/artists of the nineteeth century. The first chapers were well covered, but as I went along, it got more and more repetitive.
I believe authors should leave out their convictions when writing in the third person. She keeps on about how badly women were regarded, how unfair and cruel was a male-dominated society against women. I think most of us already know this, and I (and [probably most of you) chose this book to read about art, not feminism.
Also, the chapter about photography went too much in depth. If only the writer did the same when covering fine art topics....

I suggest the Pelican History of Art series instead. Maybe the books are not visually as attractive but they are more comprenhensive and far better written.
