Excerpt from Women Artists: In All Ages and Countries
It is manifestly impossible, in a work of this kind, to include even the names of all the women artists who are worthy of remembrance. Among those of the present day are many who have not yet had suffi cient experience to do justice to their own powers, and any criticism of their productions would be premature and unfair.
No attempt has been made in the following pages to give elaborate critiques or a connected history of art. The aim has been simply to show what woman has done, with the general conditions favorable or nu favorable to her efforts, and to give such impressions of the character of each prominent artist as may be derived from a faithful record of her personal experi ences. More may be learned by a view of the early struggles and trials, the persevering industry and the well-earned triumphs of the gifted than by the most erudite or fine-spun disquisition. Should the perusal of my book inspire with courage and resolution any woman who aspires to overcome difficulties in the achievement of honorable independence, or should it lead to a higher general respect for the powers of women and their destined position in the realm of Art, my object will be accomplished.) E. F. E.
