Women's History Month: 6 Books about Women Artists in the 18th-Century

Continuing last year's tradition, in honor of Women's History Month, I will be posting (almost) every day in March about something related to women's history, in particular women's history related to the 18th century and 18th-19th century France. I hope that there will be something for everyone this month--please enjoy!
