Another good book that has numerous self-portraits by female artists is "Women Artists" by Margaret Barlow.

Hello from the USA: I'm a student looking for any Paintings by Maria Hadfield Cosway OTHER THEN "Portrait of the Honorable George Lamb as the Infant With a Dog". Thank you.

[...] But sometimes we can talk about good historical fiction or beautiful 17c books or surprisingly feminist popular Victorian authors or fine exhibits of women’s European and Asian art. [...]

I have another book by the same author, "A World of Our Own, Women as Artists", which also contains a lot of self-portraits. I think there's something in the claim that this was a particular important form for women. I have gazing down at my desk one of Mary Beale's self-portraits - the one in which she rests her hand on a painting of her sons. I love the way she looks both confident and self-contained.

Very cool post! I wish I could see the exhibit. There's a terrific book on women's self-portraits by Frances Borzello entitled "Seeing Ourselves: Women's Self-Portraits." I love looking at it. It includes some of the females artists you mention, as well as many fabulous contemporary artists. My favorite work in the entire book: Cynthia Mailman's incredible "Self-Portrait as God."
