A nice volume on female artists ranging from the Renaissance to the mid 1990s. "Nancy G. Heller's text offers a lively overview of the obstacles that women encountered--restricted access to education and apprenticeship, social pressures to marry and mother, limited opportunities to travel and exhibit--but she most emphasizes the ingenious ways that generations of women artists circumvented these obstacles to establish themselves as well-respected professionals." -- Excerpt from flap.
