Format: Paperback
Chadwicks masterly study of women in European art is incredibily well researched. She manages to uncover the forgotton contribution of women to the arts and the context of the contemporary worlds they lived within. Her dicussion of the major ideological trends in society and the arts is impressive. While it could have included more discussion on the non Anglo-American art scene, the book has proved invaluable in understanding the complexities of women in art history.

This book presumes the reader has a good knowledge of art history etc., and goes into great depth with much detail. As I was looking for something more general I found it heavy going in places and thought the last sections devoted to modern art disappointing with quesionable examples. I think we all have an instinct for what is good art, and a lot of these simply aren't - they separate the masses from art, rather than integrate. Apart from that, it's good value, plenty of illustrations and well written. It'll stay on my shelf as a reference book I can dip into from time to time.
