Book of the Week #23

 

 

 

 

 

This week's book of the week is an exciting one; Rocking the System, Fearless and Amazing Irish Women who Made History by Siobhán Parkinson. The book details some of the amazing Irish women who forced their way into the history books, and it happens to features one of our favourite artists; 20th-century pioneer of Modernism, Mainie Jellett.

 

 

"Mainie Jellett realised that the reason people did not appreciate her work was that they did not understand new movements in art. So she began to give public lectures and talks on the radio. She published articles promoting art and explaining Modernism."

 

 

*Praise hands*

 

 

Each week you'll find a new book of the week beside the till, alongside the previous week's title, both of which will be on sale with 10% off for their fortnight in the spotlight.
