While acknowledging the manywomen whose contributions to visual culture have often beenneglected, Whitney Chadwick’s survey reexamines the worksthemselves and the ways in which they have been perceived asmarginal, often in direct reference to gender.This revised edition features a new final chapter that chartsthe evolution of feminist art history and pedagogy since the1970s. It is brought up to date with discussions of some of themost significant women artists to have emerged in recent years,including Wangechi Mutu, Jenny Saville, and Teresa Margolles.
