"The most comprehensive volume of its kind and a valuable contribution to the history of art, Gray's Dictionary of British Women Artists provides readers with significant insight into a long-neglected aspect of history - the lives and achievements of some of the most important female contributors to British art. Each entry provides key biographical information, as well as (where possible) commentary on the artist's studies, lifestyle, travels and family. Entries also detail major works, exhibitions and membership of societies. Gray's introduction provides a useful context to the biographies." --Book Jacket.
