Description
&"In her superb study, Van Hook works simultaneously as art and cultural historian, chronicling the preoccupation with the female figure in post&Civil War art on the part of a new generation of cosmopolitan, European-trained artists. Taking turn-of-the-century writings by artists, popular journalists, art critics, and historians as her guide, the author analyzes what these works meant to their audiences and how they shaped the notion of the feminine. She argues that the prevailing definitions of 'art&' and 'culture&' in the Gilded Age were analogous to the construction of the feminine gender, resulting in the 'inevitable&' dominance of ideal images of women.&" &-Ellen Todd, George Mason University
