Linda Nochlin, one of the most influential art historians of the twentieth century, has passed. Nochlin is best known for her 1971 essay "Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?" which incited a profound shift in thinking among curators, critics and art historians and is a foundational text for feminist art history and theory.

ARTNEWS, which originally published her seminal essay in 1971, has published a thoughtful tribute.
