British Women Artists: From Suffrage to the Sixties


In the decades after women won the vote in Britain, the fortunes of female artists were shaped by war, domesticity, continuing obstacles and spirited resistance. Some succeeded in forging creative careers; others were thwarted by the odds stacked against them. Weaving individual stories with playful critique, this title reveals the hidden history of a rich network of neglected women artists, along with that of renowned presences as Barbara Hepworth, Laura Knight and Winifred Nicholson.
