Summary

An exploration of women’s contributions to visual culture in major urban centres between the wars (1918-1939), this collection sheds new light on women’s relationships with the processes of modernism and modernization. Women’s work in a variety of mediums is explored, including design, print, illustration, murals, poster art, and costume design, as well as more conventional forms of painting and sculpture. International in scope, the volume discusses artists and exhibitions from the United Kingdom, Greece, Mexico, France, Ireland and the United States. The contributors place a strong emphasis on archival research yet each addresses contemporary concerns in feminist art history. By focusing on a very specific time period, the essays place a central concern on the history and theory of art and gender and are united by their coherent focus on women’s role in the agency and mediation of artistic production in the interwar period.
