"This book is a monumental contribution to a rapidly growing body of studies on pioneering women artists. It will galvanize this field with fresh topics of discussion and a rich harvest of new archival findings."-Sheila Barker, Founding Director, Jane Fortune Research Program on Women Artists
"This important study by Babette Bohn, a seasoned art historian
and expert on early modern Bologna, presents a comprehensive,
in-depth picture of 'the Bolognese phenomenon,' i.e., the unusual
surge of successful women artists in that Renaissance city. Bohn's
book will be a valuable resource for scholars and students of art
history and gender studies, and it is likely to become a
methodological model for the study of women artists in other
Renaissance cities."-Mary Garrard, author of Brunelleschi's Egg:
Nature, Art, and Gender in Renaissance Italy
"There is no doubt that Babette Bohn's much-anticipated book analyzing the place of creative women in early modern Bologna will change the way we understand and teach early modern art. Building on several decades of scholarship on Bolognese women artists, and women artists more broadly, as well as her own earlier publications on this and related topics, Bohn assembles the strongest evidence to date explaining why the city of Bologna was such a centre for these women."-Jaqueline Marie Musacchio, Renaissance and Reformation
