Synopses & Reviews
Don't think that because there are no male artists in this book that it's any less a comprehensive guide to 20th-century art and art movements. And don't expect a quaint, lightweight offering: this hefty baby weighs in at 576 pages and features more than 90 international artists from the 20s to the turn of the millennium. The media covered range from the standard painting, sculpture, and photography to concept art, performance, body art, video, feminist actions, installations, and interactive projects.
Many of the century's greatest artistic talents grace the pages of this tome, each artist represented by six pages of illustrations and photographs covering the various phases of her life and work, including biographical portraits and text. Presented in alphabetical order by artist, Women Artists is an indispensable reference guide and a joy to flip through.
