Gender and Art
Yale University Press, 1999 - Art - 267 pages
In this intriguing book, a diverse collection of case studies sheds light on the effects of gender issues on the study of art history. Encompassing European art, architecture, & design from the sixteenth century to the present day, the book examines the role of gender difference in the production, consumption, & interpretation of works of art. The authors explore both the work of women artists & the ways that visual representation by both female & male artists may be gendered.
