A Studio of Her Own: Women Artists in Boston 1870-1940 by Erica E. Hirshler

As early as 1889, one Boston art critic had reported that there is nothing that men do that is not done by women now in Boston. The city of Boston saw perhaps the largest concentration of women artists in the country, and A Studio of Her Owntells the interwoven stories of 40 of them in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It explores their lives and work both individually and communally, taking particular note of the relationships they formed, which enabled many of them to excel. Along with individual portraits of the artists, the book includes discussions of such contextual issues as the importance of the Arts and Crafts movement, concerns of marriage, family and sexuality, and the role of the MFA School. A Studio of Her Ownis the definitive work on an important moment in Americas cultural and artistic history.
