Being contributed papers dealing with the depiction of women in art (mostly French painting) from the late eighteenth century onward. This 1973 book is a product of its time in its physical production, with sparse use of color illustration, so it is not for browsers or seekers of aesthetic gratification. Most of the essays are insightful enough, but unfortunately, it's difficult for one's primary memory not to be a bad one: the book's longest essay (by far): a yawner on corsetry. ( )
