Author(s): Linda Nochlin

art theory

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.
