The book ranges them alongside each other to examine and compare their development, their work and the positions they took in the crucial years of their careers between 1890 and 1920. In the case of female artists, whose position had been hard-won over the previous half-century, this is as yet a more or less unexplored area as the question of modernity is perpetuated as 'men's business'".--BOOK JACKET."
