Women Artists: An Illustrated History

(No reviews yet)

With its lavish color illustrations―the paintings and sculptures are all  reproduced in full color―and numerous documentary pictures of the  artists themselves, Women Artists: An Illustrated History  provides an unprecedented wealth of visual material on the subject. With  coverage of the 1990s and the beginning of the new millennium, nearly  half of this new edition of Women Artists is now devoted to the  remarkable period from 1960 to the present, when women artists emerged  as the most dynamic force in contemporary art.

New to this  edition are innovative contemporary American artists, such as Janine  Antoni and Renee Cox, as well as major international figures, including  Iran's Shirin Neshat, Shahzia Sikander from Pakistan, and the Icelandic  sculptor and performance artist Katrín Sigurdardóttir. As in past  editions, all the artists works are represented in large–format color  reproductions, and the artists careers are examined in concise critical  biographies.
