Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Women have been involved in making art in most times and places, despite difficulties in training and trading their work, and gaining recognition. For about three thousand years, the women - and only the women - of Mithila have been making devotional paintings of the gods and goddesses of the Hindu pantheon. It is no exaggeration, then, to say that this art is the expression of the most genuine aspect of Indian civilization. In the West the Middle Ages were arguably the best period for women artists;[citation needed] the later introduction of drawing from life models made it far harder, for reasons of decorum, for women to obtain the specialised training required for a professional artist.
