Women in Art Review
- January 1, 1970Gabrielle BelisleSo many wonderful artists I had sadly never heard of. My only complaints with this book are that there aren't more early artists from before 1900 (Artemisia Gentileschi and Anna Atkins would have been perfect additions) and that there are no images of the artists' work. I love the illustration style, but a little end note with actual images of the artworks mentioned would have saved me a lot of Googling.more
