Story of Art Without Men
by Katy Hessel
How many women artists do you know? Who makes art history? Did women even work as artists before the twentieth century? And what is the Baroque anyway?
Discover the glittering Sofonisba Anguissola of the Renaissance, the radical work of Harriet Powers in the nineteenth-century USA and the artist who really invented the Readymade.
Explore the Dutch Golden Age, the astonishing work of post-War artists in Latin America and the women artists defining art in the 2020s.
Have your sense of art history overturned, and your eyes opened to many art forms often overlooked or dismissed.

‘It’s a long way before the balance is truly redressed but this is a good start’ – Tracey Emin
‘A spirited, inspiring, brilliantly illustrated history of female artistic endeavour… The Story of Art Without Men should be on the reading list of every A-level and university art history course and on the front table of every museum and gallery shop.’ LAURA FREEMAN, THE TIMES
