Beyond the Frame rewrites the history of Victorian art to explore the relationships between feminism and visual culture in a period of heady excitement and political struggle. Artists were caught up in campaigns for women's enfranchisement, education and paid work, and many were drawn into controversies about sexuality. This richly documented and compelling study considers painting, sculpture, prints, photography, embroidery and comic drawings as well as major styles such as Pre-Raphaelitism, Neo-Classicism and Orientalism. Drawing on critical theory and post-colonial studies to analyse the links between visual media, modernity and imperialism, Deborah Cherry argues that visual culture and feminism were intimately connected to the relations of power.

Deborah Cherry is Professor of the Histoy of Art at the University of Sussex. Her previous publications include Painting Women: Victorian Women Artists (Routledge 1993).Review:
...a vitally important historical reconfiguration of gender, class and race as contradictory and troubling forces in women's struggle for participation and self-definition within the imperial movement. This book will become a benchmark of feminist scholarship, realigning women's history with the central interpretations of the 19th century.
–Professor Griselda Pollock, University of Leeds
Deborah Cherry provides an eloquent history of the crucial connections between Victorian women artists, the new visual culture and nineteenth-century social struggles over women's rights. New readings of gender and urban space, the public reception of Harriet Hosmer's ZENOBIA, and the cultural work of British women in Algeria make this an important contributions not merely to art history, but to cultural history generally--Whitney Chadwick, San Francisco State University.
Deborah Cherry's excellent new book, Beyond the Frame, may be seen as a measure of the distance feminist art history has traveled over the past twenty years. As someone who was first inspired by Cherry's work in the late 1980s, I am fascinated and sincerely impressed by the way i which the daring, polemical textual analyses that then characterized her work are now but one strand in what is a wonderfully rich tapestry of discursive analysis, social an cultural history, attentin to matters of textual production and reception, and an astute engagement of the latest postcolonial theorizing...Cherry remains an exemplary and inspiring practicioner..
