This compact and impressive little survey features art by women from around the world, from the Renaissance to the present, and in all media.
This handsome volume of works from the renowned collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts is a fascinating record of women's diverse accomplishments from the Renaissance to the first decade of the twenty-first century. Prior to the establishment of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the work of great women artists had been ignored, forgotten, or denied; they had been largely left out of museums and histories of art.
The National Museum of Women in the Arts' multifaceted treasures include paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints, and crafts produced over the past five centuries by an international array of 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, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Lee Krasner, and many more.Details: By Susan Fisher Sterling
