Great Women Painters

Regular price Regular price $70

This groundbreaking book—titled after Linda Nochlin’s provocative 1971 essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?”—surveys more than three hundred women painters to present a rich and diverse global history that spans almost five centuries. Great Women Painters continues Phaidon’s The Art Book series and champions a diverse narrative that incorporates both established and emerging artists, including many who worked despite challenges based on their gender.

The volume is introduced with an essay by curator and writer Alison M. Gingeras and features a profile of each artist written by one of a cadre of expert contributors as well as full-color illustrations of the artists’ works. The spotlighted artists include Hilma af Klimt, Cecily Brown, Jordan Casteel, Jadé Fadojutimi, Beverly Fishman, Helen Frankenthaler, Katharina Grosse, Shara Hughes, Karen Kilimnik, Maria Lassnig, Agnes Martin, Sarah Morris, Alice Neel, Hilary Pecis, Bridget Riley, Faith Ringgold, Dana Schutz, Lorna Simpson, Adriana Varejão, and Lisa Yuskavage, among others.
