Women's Art Work: More than 30 Female Artists Who Changed the World

Discover the work of female artists who have made their mark on the art world. Women’s Art Work introduces readers to the lives and work of the world’s most renowned artists. With a foreword from Tate’s first female director, Maria Balshaw, this collection celebrates the creativity of women in more than 30 biographies, investigating their practices and exploring their contributions to the art world.

Readers will learn about a diverse group of innovators like Frida Kahlo, Cindy Sherman, Ana Mendieta, Lubaina Himid, Cao Fei, and the Guerrilla Girls. From early pioneers to today’s most radical creators, these women have overcome obstacles, broken boundaries, and enriched our understanding of what art is and can be. It also features original interviews with living artists — including Yayoi Kusama, Lorna Simpson, and Rachel Whiteread. With a glossary of art terms, a timeline of major milestones, and educational sidebars, this highly illustrated book is perfect for any art lover.
