On this grand tour of western Looking for cathereena culture, you couldn't ask for a better guide than McCormack, an art historian with attitude who offers a rousing new lens for looking "beyond the exchange of seeing and being seen". A bold reconsideration of women in art - from the 'Old Masters' to the posts of Instagram influencers. Women's identity has long been stifled by a limited set of archetypes, found everywhere in pictures from art history's classics to advertising, while women artists have been overlooked and held back from shaping more empowering roles.

She writes beautifully and with an accessible voice, moving effortlessly from the Rokeby Venus to contemporary culture's narcissistic obsession with social media selfies.
A wide range of readers will benefit from her synthesis of thousands of years of art about the female body and how this has impacted and occluded our understanding of women's experience.

On this grand tour of western visual culture from Botticelli to Beyonce, virtuous mothers to monstrous women, from Lilith to I Love Dick, you couldn't ask for a better guide than McCormack, an art historian with attitude who offers a rousing new lens for looking "beyond the exchange of seeing and being seen".
