Clara Erskine Clement The book begins: "In speaking of art we often contrast the useful or technical arts with the Fine Arts; by these terms we denote the difference between the arts which are used n making such things as are necessary and useful in civilized life, and the arts by which ornamental and beautiful things are made. The fine arts are Architecture, Sculpture, Painting, Poetry, and Music, and though we could live if none of these existed, yet life would be far from the pleasant experience that it is often made to be through the enjoyment of these arts." According to Wikipedia, the author, Clara Erskine Clement (1834-1916) "was a United States author and traveler."

Clara Erskine Clement First published in 1904, brief biographies of female artists. According to the Introduction: "In studying the subject of this book I have found the names of more than a thousand women whose attainments in the Fine Arts--in various countries and at different periods of time before the middle of the nineteenth century--entitle them to honorable mention as artists, and I doubt not that an exhaustive search would largely increase this number. The stories of many of these women have been written with more or less detail, while of others we know little more than their names and the titles of a few of their works; but even our scanty knowledge of them is of value."
