Hollis Sigler, a leading feminist artist, was diagnosed in 1985 as having breast cancer. After it recurred she began a pictorial journal, now encompassing more than 100 works, which combines personal experience with family history, medical statistics and the raising of political awareness. This volume brings together 60 of her paintings, with additional essays by the artist, Dr Susan M Love and James Yood, who draw parallels between Sigler and Frida Kahlo.
