From the Author
At the Art Canada Institute, I am grateful to Sara Angel, Meg Taylor, Anna Hudson, and Angelica Demetriou for their guidance and generosity. I would also like to acknowledge the editing prowess of Shannon Anderson, my substantive editor, as well as the fantastic work done by John Geoghegan on the image research and the stellar design by Simone Wharton. I am grateful for the valuable suggestions made by the anonymous peer reviewer. My thanks also to Janice Anderson of Concordia University’s Canadian Women Artists History Initiative for her help with Prudence Heward’s artist files. I am very grateful to Kristina Huneault in the Department of Art History at Concordia University for acting as my SSHRC Postdoctoral supervisor, as well as for her innovative and brilliant scholarship on Canadian women artists. Finally, I would like to dedicate this text to Janice Helland, my PhD supervisor at Queen’s University; she was the first to inspire my passion for feminist art history and the study of women artists.
