More than a Muse : Creative partnerships that sold talented women short by Katie McCabe

£16.99

How many times have you seen a woman artist solely referred to as the wife, girlfriend, muse, or ‘mistress’ of a man in the public eye?

Throughout history, the achievements of women working across artistic disciplines – from visual artists to writers to filmmakers – have been largely undervalued, with the title of ‘genius’ reserved mainly for men. More than a Muse unpacks the complex romantic relationships that left women overshadowed, anonymous or underestimated in their work. Katie McCabe shines a light on the stories of talents like photographer Dora Maar, pioneering film editor and Hitchcock-collaborator Alma Reville, jazz pianist Lil Hardin Armstrong and many more.

Exploring a broad scope of art movements and moments from Surrealism to early British silent film, Katie reexamines the contributions of women that have too often been ignored. More than a Muse views our history through the lens of artistic partnership, and positions women solidly in the foreground.
