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.

The book is particularly good in covering the post-Impressionists and the emergence of photography as an element of art.
