"Myths of Sexuality" is a pioneering work of feminist art history. It tells how the depiction of women in art defined and confined their role in Victorian Britain. This book offers an analysis of the regulation of women's behaviour in the 19th century. Victorian notions of acceptable and unacceptable female behaviour pervade 19th century culture and reveal themselves in this book in the popular art of the time. Lynda Nead shows how paintings intended for public exhibitions in particular participated in the production of a bourgeois morality. She shows too how women were represented in medical, legal, religious and literary texts, focusing especially on the treatment of prostitution, adultery, and female philanthropy.
