A stunningly original book tracing 500 years of female self-portraiture, by a leading art critic. Women from Frida Kahlo to Suzanne Valadon navigated cities and seas, seeking solitude and creative freedom. Many endured immense hurdles, yet still painted self-portraits. Historians largely ignored these women, yet they lived lives of rebellion, revolution, and resilience. Jennifer Higgie's The Mirror and the Palette captures their stories.
