'Brilliant ... Nochlin, when you agree with her and when you don’t, is unputdownable'

'Passionate and provocative … helped to shatter the illusion that art history is universal and, in doing so, changed the field forever … We need to question conventional ways of thinking, writing, seeing, and challenge contradictions. These bold and candid essays provide readers with the tools to do so'
The Art Newspaper

Even as we now know that there have been many great women artists past and present, we still need Linda’s sharp analysis of social institutions, prejudice and systemic failure to foster the creativity of all women and learn from their unique and diverse perspectives'
