The National Trust collections include some outstanding works of art that were commissioned, painted or made by women. As part of the National Trust’s ‘Women and Power’ theme, this year’s Historic Houses & Collections Annual, published in association with Apollo, presents new insights into the creativity and ingenuity of these inspirational women.

The essays collected in this edition range from biographical encounters with female artists and their circumstances, to explorations of the patronage, commissioning and collecting through which influential women shaped some of the Trust’s finest architectural interiors. Against the backdrop of national cultural events celebrating 100 years since the Representation of the People Act, a political milestone for the suffrage movement, this volume reminds us that women’s contribution was integral to making National Trust houses the remarkable places they are today.
