Description

Product Description

"Real changes are upon us, and today one can reel off the names of a number of first-rate women artists. Nevertheless, women are just getting started."― The New Yorker

Five centuries of fascinating female creativity presented in more than 400 compelling artworks and one comprehensive volume

The most extensive fully illustrated book of women artists ever published, Great Women Artists reflects an era where art made by women is more prominent than ever. In museums, galleries, and the art market, previously overlooked female artists, past and present, are now gaining recognition and value. Featuring more than 400 artists from more than 50 countries and spanning 500 years of creativity, each artist is represented here by a key artwork and short text. This essential volume reveals a parallel yet equally engaging history of art for an age that champions a greater diversity of voices.

Review

"The headline grabber of 2019 was Phaidon''s Great Women Artists."―British VOGUE online

"Interview believes every damn day is worthy of celebrating great women, and Great Women Artists makes it easy... If only all our college art history textbooks were this much fun."―Interview Magazine Online

"Phaidon are helping to redress the balance with this encyclopaedic volume that examines 500 years of great art by great women artists... no self respecting art lover should be without a copy."―Culture Whisper

"...A wide-ranging collection of exceptional work by women."―O, The Oprah Magazine

"An epic survey."―Harper''s Bazaar

"There is a wonderful discovery aspect to this book... This book not only celebrates women artists, but also demonstrates their resilience and unmatched talent through history."―Kering Americas president Laurent Ciaquin

"Handsome... A beautiful, richly illustrated volume... A valuable resource for students of art and art history as well as curious general readers... The artists included represent a wide chronological and geographic range [...] the list is impressive... [with many] dynamic and unexpected juxtapositions produced by the book''s alphabetical organisation... The texts on each artist are astute and thoughtful. Formal analyses are intertwined with introductions to key art-historical, social and political themes. The offers a panoramic sweep... Its diverse line-up is organised alphabetically rather than chronologically so that lesser-known artists rub shoulders with established superstars."―Jo Applin, Reader in the History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, Times Literary Supplement

"The book we have been waiting for... Women artists put firmly on the map... Every now and then a book comes out that can change lives. If a survey like this had appeared when I was a student at the Slade, the struggle to make headway as a female artist would have seemed less daunting. We''d have had role models and names with which to counter the assertion that there had never been any significant women artists. And the recent explosion of female talent celebrated in this book might have happened a generation earlier. Phaidon''s latest offering is a revelation... This impressive survey spans 500 years... It''s incredibly hard to distill a life''s work into a few hundred words, but these 23 writers do an excellent job of summarising the salient points... The burgeoning numbers of women now making and exhibiting work is reflected in this selection. Most impressive is the quality and diversity of work... This inspiring book is not just a celebration of women''s creativity, it is symptomatic of a sea change... Things they are a-changing - at last. And if anyone has the temerity ever again to claim there have been no great women artists, you will be able to use this timely tome to knock the idea on its head, once and for all."―Sarah Kent, TheArtsDesk.com

"Women who have been airbrushed out of art history... are enjoying a renaissance, while contemporary female artists are starting to benefit from re-evaluations."―The Sunday Times

"Female artists have been neglected for so long that their work - even if it was painted 70 years ago - feels new and cutting edge. For collectors, it has the irresistible allure of discovery."―The New York Times

"It''s good to see the auction houses finally giving more women a chance. For money is a powerful symbol of cultural worth."―The Economist

"Until very recently... the idea that women in the West have always made art was rarely cited asa possility. Yet, they have - and continue to do so - often against tremendous odds."―Frieze Magazine

I was very disappointed when I opened this book to see that these 3 incredible women "GREAT" artists were excluded from this book. Francoise Gilot is one of the greatest female painters and should not just be known as a wife to Pablo Picasso or Jonas Salk. Seriously, I am utterly shocked to see that she was not included. It just makes no sense. Let alone Hilla Rebay, who was a huge influence in Jackson Pollock''s early career - he worked as a janitor in late 1930''s in NYC at the Museum of Non-Objective Art, which is now the Solomon Guggenheim Museum. I suppose one can forgive Emma Kunz''s ommission since she was considered more of an "outsider" artist, although she was included in C.G. Jung''s Man and his Symbols and as well as in the book, 3x Abstraction, along with Hilma af Klint and Agnes Martin. Her work is extraordinary and still modern and contemporary. I respect how difficult it must be to be diplomatic in your editing process as to who to choose and not to choose, but these 2 women contributed greatly to the 20th centuries world of art.

A long, long, long overdue and magnificent recognition of artists like Véra Molnar, 95 years young, a pioneer beginning in the late 1960s of computer and digital art. Véra was coding and having to sneak into computer facilities just because she was a woman! It is bittersweet that Vera and other extraordinary artists have been overlooked for far too long. Now thanks to Phaidon and this book she will be known around the globe.

Women artists are extremely relevant
Reviewed in the United States on January 19, 2020
This is a definitive publication about women in the arts. Women have, forever, been held in lesser esteem than their male artist counterparts. There are so many women artists listed that no one who reads it can any longer ignore their importance to the art world.

This book should be banned under the Trade Description Act. It professes to describe 400 “Great” women artists over the last 500 years. It is neither. Admittedly it HAS 400 entries. Most of them (about 300) are from the post war (WW2) period and almost half of them are from the English speaking part of the world. Conceptual “art” seems to dominate the proceedings. So we have three plates with tents – one of them from the guru of the conceptual art our very Tracey Emin. Then we have another piece named Hymenoplasty which just shows a woman spread on a gynaecology operating table with her bits covered by towel and nothing else. Suppose very easy to guess the name of the “work”. Another piece shows a chandelier made up from tampons – thankfully not previously used. Needless to say that tampons are more important than for example the marvellous Last Supper by Plautilla Nelli which can be admired in the Basilica di Santa Maria Novella in Florence and whose author is not included together with many other truly great female artists. The only redeeming feature of the book is that the editors unwittingly have managed to include a few works of interest.

This is not an exhausted list of women artists and you might not find all your favourites - but it''s not meant to be. What it does do is show that women have been contributing to every major movement and moment in art history and that their work is frequently at least as talented/thought-provoking as many of the vastly more famous male artists. I have found at least three new artists that I love that I was completely unaware of before - much to my shame. I would highly recommend this to any art or history lover - the brief descriptions of the artists'' lives are sometimes just as interesting as the art. Aside from being an excellent example of how (women) artists have been written out of history, it''s a great quality art book - the pictures are all very clear and the paper is of sufficient quality to show them well.
