A Survey of Women Artists Working in California, 1860-1960

Leigh Donlan of Ballet to the People Reviews “Emerging from the Shadows”

ballettothepeople.com logoBallet to the People’s Leigh Donlan reviews a new series of art books–Emerging from the Shadows.

Here’s an excerpt from her review:

“While this series focuses on fine art, many of the women excelled in multiple art forms – such as music, theatre, film and writing – in which they sought to find their most authentic voice. Their stories are as diverse as their chosen mediums. One unifying trait amongst them all was their fearlessness. These restless spirits followed their hearts and often travelled the country and the world – in a time when travel meant boats and trains – to find inspiration and to quench their desire to learn.”
