Beware of the Woman Artist

Beware of the Woman Artist
$ 40.00| £ 30.00 (* recommended retail price)

Traversing decades and continents, these fifty gorgeously illustrated profiles celebrate pioneering women who at once fought against and transformed the maledominated artistic establishment of their time.

From mystic and groundbreaking color theorist Hilma af Klimt to the multi-disciplinary storyteller Megan Rooney, this thoughtfully curated and stunningly illustrated collection celebrates the rich tapestry of creativity and perseverance of women artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Organized chronologically by year of birth, this book features multi-page spreads that include an introductory text accompanied by dazzling full-color reproductions of each artist’s work. Readers will discover the enormous variety of contributions from women of color such as Elizabeth Catlett, Saloua Raouda Choucair, Bertina Lopes, and Faith Ringgold; women from non-western cultures, including Kubra Khademi, Irene Chou, Zarina, Wook-Kyung Choi, and Nairy Baghramian; work that explores the female body by Marlene Dumas, Rebecca Horn, Valie Export, and Ana Mendieta; and the radical, groundbreaking work of Judy Chicago, Lygia Clark, and the Guerilla Girls. Throughout, readers will gain an understanding of the enormous struggles women artists have faced; of the incredible accomplishments they have achieved in the face of sexism, ageism, and racism; and how, despite these advancements, they continue to fight for recognition in a culture and climate dominated by men.
