For as long as there’s been paint, there have been women painters – you just haven’t heard of them yet.

From artists at the forefront of the Dutch Golden Age to avant-garde radicals in Soviet Russia and surrealist thinkers in exile, this book gathers together 65 painters from throughout history and across the world. Sometimes ignored – but always iconic – this highly opinionated guide will tell you everything you need to know, and nothing that you don’t, about the women behind the canvas (and quite a bit about what’s on the canvas too).

Witty opinion is set alongside faithful colour reproductions in an elegant hardback that will persuade anyone that these painters are worth knowing about. The first book in a new series of Opinionated Guides on art movements, mediums and ideas which builds on the success of Hoxton Mini Press Opinionated Guides to London.
