Post a comment to tell us what you think the caption should be for this image. It’s ‘The Black Brunswicker’ by Millais (more on it and a larger image on our main site).

The book features Tracey Emin, Rachel Whiteread, Georgia O’Keeffe, Barbara Hepworth, Frieda Kahlo, Bridget Riley, Kara Walker and many, many more, and ties in nicely with the forthcoming exhibition, ‘The Rise of Women Artists’ which starts at the Walker on 23 October.

If you didn’t catch the episode there’s always the BBC iplayer.
