Women Artists - The Linda Nochlin Reader

Author(s): Linda Nochlin


Linda Nochlin was one of the most accessible, provocative, and innovative art historians of our time. In 1971, she published "Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?"--a dramatic feminist call to arms that questioned traditional art historical practices and led to a major revision of the discipline.Now available in paperback, Women Artists brings together twenty-nine essential essays from throughout Nochlin's career. Included are her major thematic texts "Women Artists After the French Revolution" and "Starting from Scratch: The Beginnings of Feminist Art History," as well as her landmark 1971 essay and its rejoinder, " 'Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?' Thirty Years After." These appear alongside monographic entries focusing on a selection of major women artists, including Mary Cassatt, Louise Bourgeois, Cecily Brown, Kiki Smith, Miwa Yanagi, and Sophie Calle.
