Representing Women


An essential testament to the late great feminist art historian, described by the Guardian as ‘mischievous, provocative and iconoclastic’


ISBN: 9780500294758 Category:

Linda Nochlin


Women – as warriors, workers, mothers, sensual women,even absent women – haunt 19th- and 20th-century Western painting: their representation is one of its most common subjects.

Representing Women brings together Linda Nochlin’s most important writings on the subject, as she considers work by Miller, Delacroix, Courbet, Degas, Seurat, Cassatt and Kollwitz, among many others. In her riveting, partly autobiographical, extended introduction, Nochlin documents her own pioneering approach to art history; throughout the seven essays in this book, she argues for the honest virtues of an art history that rejects methodological assumptions, and for art historians who investigate the work before their eyes while focusing on its subject matter, informed by a sensitivity to its feminist spirit.
