Why have there been no great women artists?

Linda Nochlin’s landmark 1971 essay Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists? heralded the dawn of a feminist history of art, daring to dismantle basic assumptions that centred a male-coded artistic ‘genius’. In 2021, Nochlin’s message remains as urgent as ever, and today Thames and Hudson publish the 50th anniversary edition of her text-turned-rallying-cry, alongside its reappraisal ‘Thirty Years After’.

This standalone edition includes contributions from Judy Chicago and Catherine Grant as well as the essay’s reappraisal, a striking reflection on the emergence of a whole new canon.
