- Consider for a moment the history of modern art in Britain; you may struggle to land on a narrative that features very many women. On this journey through a fascinating period of social change, artist Carolyn Trant fills in some of the gaps in traditional art histories. Introducing the lives and works of a rich network of neglected women artists, 'Voyaging Out' sets these alongside such renowned presences as Barbara Hepworth, Laura Knight and Winifred Nicholson.
