The North American art historian Linda Nochlin (1931) has been the leader of a rereading of the art history canon since she published her highly influential Why have there been no great women artists? and Realism, both in 1971. 
Her analysis has given rise to a broader view of the social history of art and the definitive incorporation of feminism and gender studies as a driving force in the critical transformation of the discipline.
This lecture addresses the issue of portraying society and the political engagement of the artist.
