Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

This extensively illustrated book discusses the representation of women in the art of the late Middle Ages in Northern Europe. Drawing on a wide range of different media, but making particular use of the rich plethora of woodcuts, the author charts how the images of women hanged during the period and proposes two basic categories - the Virgin and Eve, good and evil. Within these, however, we discover attitudes to sinful, foolish, married and unmarried women and the style and use of these images exposes the full extend of the misogyny entrenched in medieval society. Interesting too is the variety of images of 'good' women and how they were used to confirm the social position of women throughout different classes. We also learn how women fought back: starting in the margins of manuscripts and them emerging in misericordes, there are images of women making fools of men; love triangles; and unequal couples, where the women 'wear the trousers'. We the advent of printing, a whole genre of satirical prints about women snowballed, and the views they express became available for mass consumption.
