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.
“The headline grabber of 2019 was Phaidon’s Great Women Artists.”—British VOGUE online
“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
