Women in the Picture: What Culture Does with Women's Bodies and How We Can Learn to See Differently (Hardback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Women in the Picture is a fierce challenge to the ways we depict, and are taught to see, women's bodies.





Plunging into the realms of art history, popular visual culture and advertising, McCormack opens our eyes to how archetypal depictions of women - as mothers, daughters, Venuses, whores or 'nasty women' - have encouraged us to objectify and subjugate, and to normalise violence towards them.







Taking in classic works of art by the likes of Titian and Picasso, as well as contemporary representations of women in everything from Hollywood films to perfume advertisements to censored Instagram images, we'll reconsider the context in which images of women have been produced, displayed and reproduced - and the appeal to 'beauty' that has stopped us from seeing the misogyny of some of the world's 'greatest' artists and public figures.







It's time to learn new ways of seeing.

Catherine McCormack is an art historian. The founder and course leader of Sotheby's Institute of Art's 'Women and Art' programme, she also writes and lectures widely, including at Dulwich Picture Gallery, the V&A and London Art Studies.
