From the Back Cover:

Behind every great artist stands the prime source of his inspiration – the woman in his life. Seldom publicly recognised, the lives of these women have hitherto remained largely shrouded in mystery. Now Sally Swain remedies years of social injustice by allowing us a glimpse at the daily routines of the 'Great Housewives of Art', from Mrs Magritte tidying the hat-rack to Mrs Duchamp's attempts to rid herself of those unsightly facial hairs.

This brilliant and hilarious series of pastiches is not only the most original humorous book of our time, but also a provocative sideways glance at the role of women and the nature of art.

About the Author:

Sally Swain is a former Texan cowboy turned writer and film maker. His films have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and represented the US in international conferences.
