Too Often In The Annals Of Art, women have been on the canvas - but not behind the brush. Confronted by society's daunting restrictions, they have struggled to obtain training, commissions, and critical acclaim. But some enterprising women have defied the odds to produce great works of art and become innovators in their fields. This riveting three-part documentary highlights women's artistic achievements, rescuing them from the shadows of history.

Professor Amanda Vickery escorts us on unprecedented tour through four centuries of Western art. She journey's from Renaissance Italy to the French Revolution and beyond, covering everything from Dutch genre paintings to French impressionism and American modern art. Along the way, she acquaints us with extraordinary artists including Artemisia Gentileschi, Judith Leyster, Angelica Kauffman, Elisabeth Vigree-Lebrun, Berthe Morisot, Georgia O'Keeffe, and many more. From the painting we see in museums to the clothes we wear and the way we decorate our homes, their influence still resonates all around us.

Historian, writer, and broadcaster Amanda Vickery teaches early modern history at Queen Mary University of London. An award-winning author, she also writes reviews for the Guardian and BBC radio.
