Griselda Pollock is an internationally acclaimed writer, academic, art historian and cultural analyst of international, postcolonial feminist studies in the visual arts and visual culture. Based in the United Kingdom, she is known for her theoretical and methodological innovation, combined with readings of historical and contemporary art, film and cultural theory. Since 1977, Pollock has been one of the most influential scholars of modern, avant-garde art, postmodern art, and contemporary art and has been a major influence in feminist theory, feminist art history and gender studies. Her 1988 book, 'Vision and Difference: Feminism, Femininity, and Histories of Art', a study of women’s role in shaping modern art as it is known today, is considered essential for the way it considered gender alongside class and larger economic factors.
