Reviews and Features

"The essays in this volume convincingly highlight women artists’ valuable contribution to their field and, in doing so challenge the traditional bias in art historical research. [...] The volume is exactly what it promises to be: an example of the new and promising scholarship on the importance of early modern female artists."
- Lieke van Deinsen, Canadian Journal of Netherlandic Studies, 41.1 (2021)

"A timely intervention for the field of Netherlandish art at large. Not only does it offer a useful selection of case studies, the book issues a provocative call for greater scholarly self-reflection on the systems that continue to erase, downplay, or omit women’s names, tastes, artistry, and labor. [...] This is a vital and highly recommended volume that hopefully heralds new directions to come."
- Elisabeth Berry Drago, Historians of Netherlandish Art, March 2021

"This short but stimulating collection of seven essays [...] challenges traditional approaches to the study of women’s roles in Netherlandish art during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Each essay is characterized by this spirit of innovation, raising questions about art historical methods and choice of subjects."
- Babette Bohn, Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 75, No. 2
