Contains substantial entries on 600 fine artists born before 1945. The emphasis is historical, focusing on the Western tradition of painting and sculpture, and exploring the problems women encountered in trying to obtain adequate training and professional recognition. Introductory essays examine training opportunities, the changing conditions of work for women since the medieval period, the contribution of women to the applied arts, and training and professionalism in 19th and 20th century Europe, Russia, North America and Australasia. Entries include biographical information, a list of principle exhibitions, selected writings, a bibliography, a representative work, and a description of critical reception, professional and artistic development, individual works and philosophies, and the artist's influences, contemporaries and companions.
