Art, Nation and Gender: Ethnic Landscapes, Myths, and Mother-figures
Ashgate, 2003 - History - 147 pages
The essay collection explores the conjunctions of nation, gender, and visual representation in a number of countries during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Through the study of a range of visual art from allegorical female figures that personify the nation to national architecture, the essays in this volume cast new light on both the significance of gender, and the role of art in the construction of nationalist ideology and the constitution of the nation-state. The case-studies presented in this publication can be seen to provide exciting new perspectives on the interrelationships of art, nation and gender.
