The Union of Women Painters and Sculptors was founded in Paris in 1881 to represent the interests of women artists and to facilitate the exhibition of their work. This lively and informative book traces the history of the first fifteen years of the organization and places it in the context of the Paris art world and the development of feminism in the late nineteenth century. Reversing conventional accounts of the Paris art world during this period, Tamar Garb offers a new picture from the point of view of a group of women who were marginalized by its dominant institutions.
