It's a women's world
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. The media covered range from the standard painting, sculpture, and photography to concept art, performance, body art, video, feminist actions, installations, and interactive projects. Presented in alphabetical order by artist, Women Artists is an indispensable reference guide and a joy to flip through.
