Radical Women tells an original story of British modernism from the perspective of Jessica Dismorr's career, along with the women artists - some famous, some lesserknown - she worked and exhibited with. The work of Jessica Dismorr (1885-1939) work has been described as encapsulating 'the stylistic developments of twentieth-century British Art', and her oeuvre certainly encompasses some its most exciting moments - from Rhythm in the early 1910s, through Vorticism, towards post-war modernist figuration and finally into the abstraction she shared with radical political artists groups in the 1930s. Within this period of intense creativity, which extended beyond art to literary and design accomplishments too, Dismorr was privileged to work and exhibit alongside some of the most exciting female artists of the time, including Barbara Hepworth and Winifred Nicholson, to lesser-known figures such as Dorothy Shakespear, Anne Estelle Rice and Helen Saunders. Bringing a web of fascinating connections to light for the first time, this publication provides a fresh interpretation of a pioneering period and the role women played within it.

Radical Women tells a fresh, new story of British modernism, as the first to cover the entirety of Jessica Dismorr's (1876-1939) life and art alongside those of women artists she worked and exhibited with. The book brings to life a fascinating and turbulent period in art history and a web of fascinating connections that have, so far, been obscured.
