Frances Borzello is firmly on the side of women, art, and, luckily for us, readers. As editor with A L Rees of The New Art History, she has a firm hold on available art scholarship but adds to this a joyous, assured conversational style. Thus she starts:
I want to state that the situation of a woman working in a profession that was not of her making was unfair from beginning to end. If she was not ignored or patronised she existed as a sort of female Rorschach blot on which those around her – mostly male, but female, too – projected their thoughts, arguments, fears and prejudices.
