The Women who Shaped Modern Art in Britain tells the stories of determined women like Helen Sutherland, Margaret Gardiner, Myfanwy Piper and others, who helped to change the course of British art in the middle of the last century. Whether as friends, supporters, collectors, curators or galleristes, they played a central role in determining the emergence of artists such as Barbara Hepworth, Piet Mondrian, Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood and Francis Bacon. Hitherto overshadowed by their male counterparts, it was their vigour and passion that set London on course as an art metropolis, the equal of Paris and New York in the 1940s–60s.
