This chapter examines the work of women artists working in Paris during the period 1910-1930. It focuses on the work of several artists working on the fringes of modernist groups and whose works were widely exhibited and reviewed at the time. The author explores the critical culture through which their work was represented and some contemporary perceptions of femininity involved. She argues that a lack of historical material and limited access to relevant works by these artists has encouraged misrepresntation of the complex relationships which many women negotiated with avan-garde groups and artistic styles.
