A super contribution to women's studies and art history.

Abby Remer's Pioneering Spirits: The Life And Times Of Remarkable Women Artists In Western History showcases a surprising and fascinating history of women as artists from prehistory to the modern times. Readers will be introduced to Greek and Roman female painters of antiquity, nuns and female lay illuminators of sacred medieval manuscripts, and Renaissance heroines and creators of art with unconventional power, conviction, and talent. Pioneering Spirits reveals their struggles and achievements, and offers much that is applicable contemporary issues facing women arts down through the ages to the present day. Pioneering Spirits will prove informative and invaluable for students of art history, women's studies, and cultural mores as reflected in and by the female artist.
