Women artists between the Wars

'A fair field and no favour'

Katy Deepwell

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Examines the careers and reputations of women artists working in Britain between the two World Wars
  • Compares the way women artists were celebrated as personalities or exceptional women, and yet often regarded as 'lacking' key qualities Analyses how women artists' presence which was consistently one third of the artists in many major exhibiting groups became less than 10% of the museum purchases and in art historical texts for this period
  • Opens up a wholly different field of study in the period for British art history and offers a new set of methodological approaches within feminist art history
