'The 25 feminist texts (mostly devoted to contemporary art) collected in this timely volume embody a broad range of approaches to its titular subject, from art historical investigations of representations of motherhood to interviews with women artists...Readers will find a satisfying breadth of artistic media discussed here, including photography, video art, painting, printmaking, and sculpture; this breadth underscores yet again the complexity and significance of the topic at hand...Recommended.'
'This book is highly recommended for library purchase, as it offers wide appeal and insight into areas of art history not often covered. Although students and faculty researching feminism and women's issues will be particularly interested, the range of authors and artists represented will appeal to a broad range of scholars, as will the unique perspective gained from a compilation of writing by both art historians and artists.'
'...make[s] a decisive contribution to the emerging field of maternal studies, but also bring[s] the maternal to the surface of feminist thinking on the history and practice of art informed by feminism.'
'when I read Rachel Epp Buller's Reconciling Art and Mothering, an extraordinary collection of essays about and by women artists, I was struck by its relevance not just to the child-smitten, but to everyone. Now in paperback, and more affordable, the book deserves a wider reach.'
