'Nuff said

Men make history, while women, if they're lucky, survive it.

-- Takeaway from a circa-1946 story of a woman's life, related in Laurel Maury's San Francisco Chronicle review of a new work of criticism by poet Eavan Boland (right) (prior post). (photo credit) Entitled A Journey With Two Maps, Boland's book examines the cloaks of anonymity beneath which creative women worked. Among those oft-anonymous was Boland's mother, mid-20th C. painter Frances J. Kelly.
