Linda Nochlins landmark esseay heralded the dawn of a new feminist history of art. It remains fundamental to any appreciation of art today. At once challenging and enlightening, it is never less than fully engaging, enticing the reader to question their own assumptions and set off in a new direction. Nochlin refuses to handle the question of why there have been “no great women artists” on its own, corrupted, terms. Instead, she dismantles the very concept of greatness, unravelling the basic assumptions that created the male- centric genius in art.

With unparalleled insight, Nochlin lays bare the acceptance of a white male viewpoint in an art historical thought as nor merely a moral failure, but an intellectual one.

Nochlins message could not be more urgent: as she herself put in in 2015. “ There is still a long way to go.”
