MixedThe New York Times Book Review...Of the seven women profiled in Seaman’s book — Louise Nevelson, Gertrude Abercrombie, Loïs Mailou Jones, Ree Morton, Joan Brown, Christina Ramberg and Lenore Tawney — several are well known in the art world. Which makes you wonder if Seaman, a Chicago-based editor at Booklist who has written more on literature than the visual arts, is the right person for the job ... Seaman uses seven artists, deeply committed to their work, to spin out a tale of creativity and romantic neglect that doesn’t particularly serve art — or the artists. It makes for nice subway reading. But I feel as if the artists in this book deserve something more — and that they, even more than I, might frown upon Seaman’s well-meaning endeavor.
