Library Journal: “This essay in “personal criticism” attempts to “understand and evaluate the temperaments” of three women artists associated with Bloomsbury: Virginia Woolf, her sister the painter Vanessa Bell, and the less-well-known painter Dora Carrington. Caws’s strongly feminist perspective explores the ways these complex women – two bisexuals, two women living with gay men, two suicides – struggled to define their sense of self”.

Mary Cassatt : A Life
By Nancy Mowell Mathews
Humanitiesweb.org: “One of the few women Impressionists, Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) had a life of paradoxes: American born, she lived and worked in France; a classically trained artist, she preferred the company of radicals; never married, she painted exquisite and beloved portraits of mothers and children. This book provides new insight into the personal life and artistic endeavors of this extraordinary woman.”

Chinn and her work are inspirational!”
