Women in the Picture: Women, Art and the Power of Looking

Women in the Picture: Women, Art and the Power of Looking


In this book, Art historian and independent curator Dr Catherine McCormack looks back at iconic imagery from artists such as Titian, Botticelli, Picasso and the Pre-Raphaelites and discusses how it has stifled women's identities.

Spanning over 304 pages, she expresses how a limited set of female archetypes have appeared throughout art history from the perfect pin-up to the damsel in distress and breaks down how they caused women to be overlooked and held back from seeking more empowering roles.

She also reflects on the work of Beyonce, Berthe Morisot, Judy Chicago and Kara Walker and examines their role in showing another side to women’s identity, sexuality, race and power.
