Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This compact and impressive little survey encompasses art by women from around the world, from the Renaissance to the present, and in all media.

This handsome volume of works from The National Museum of Women in the Arts-the only museum in the world dedicated to recognizing the achievements of women artists-is a fascinating record of women's diverse accomplishments from the Renaissance to the present.

Since The National Museum of Women in the Arts opened to the public in Washington, D.C., in 1987, it has established a nationwide membership that is the third largest in the country. The museum's multifaceted treasures encompass paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints, and crafts produced over the past four centuries by an international array of renowned women artists. Included here, in full color, are works by Lavinia Fontana, Judith Leyster, Elisabeth-Louise Vigée-Lebrun, Hester Bateman, Rosa Bonheur, Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Camille Claudel, Berenice Abbott, Maria Montoya Martinez, Georgia O'Keeffe, Lee Krasner, and many more.
