Details

Drawing on a broad range of sources, including contemporary diaries, letters and periodicals, this richly illustrated social history examines the pastimes of upper-class women within the context of the highly restrictive patriarchal society in which they lived. Covering pursuits such as painting, embroidery, feather work and photography, the author also considers how other aspects of the female experience, notably education, marital status and domestic responsibilities, influenced their creative output.
