Description

Madam and Eve is a rich, varied and exciting overview of how women artists have depicted women in art over the last 50 years.

This is a visually stimulating presentation of the many different media and approaches that women have used to create images of themselves and other women, and it is also a eloquent examination of the impact that the feminist movement has had on contemporary art.

Over 200 artists, ranging from the well-established to the lesser known, are each represented by one work. A historical introduction sets the artistic and cultural context for the period up to the present, and the remaining chapters, which focus on contemporary art, cover the universal themes of the body, life, death, stories and icons.
