BeschreibungAn intensive study of the social and cultural context of a women's vocational art school which gives an unusual view of the history of higher education for women and the history of American art
Pressestimmen"In this fine book, Nina de Angeli Walls reclaims the important story of a school devoted to training women in the arts since 1848. Through the history of the Philadelphia School of Design for Women, she reasserts women's place in the cultural history of art education and in the wider context of American art history. Her careful analysis expands our understanding of women's careers, the professionalization of art education, the ecology of Philadelphia's educational institutions, and the biographies of significant 19th century women educational leaders."-Linda Eisenmann Associate Professor of Education Editor, Historical Dictionary of Women's Education in the United States University of Massachusetts Boston
