Description
During the 18th century a remarkable group of women formed the Bluestocking Salon, where women and men met to debate contemporary ideas and promote the life of the mind, helping to forge new roles for women as influential thinkers, writers, and artists. Richly illustrated with portraits, prints, and personal artifacts, Brilliant Women charts the changing fortunes of the female intellectual and explores how several bluestocking women—including artist Angelica Kauffmann, historian Catharine Macaulay, and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft—used portraiture to advance their work and their reputations in a period framed by the Enlightenment and the French Revolution.
