Somerset Cricket Museum – Art Gallery – Women’s Cricket

There is a distinct lack of Art related to Women’s Cricket between its early formation (see examples below and on the Art Gallery – Miniatures page) and the modern artist of today where possibly the camera has taken over from the Artist. This is certainly true within the Somerset Cricket Museum ….photographs, yes; art, no, with some exceptions….
