Summary
Written by best-selling author and art historian Nancy G. Heller and featuring the most noteworthy artists and key works of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Women Artists: Works from the National Museum of Women in the Arts is an illustrated history of five centuries of art and the most important publication yet to come from this preeminent museum in Washington, D.C. This beautifully designed volume is an accessible, comprehensive treasure that spans art history from the Renaissance to the present, featuring eighty-six women artists from around the world. The book is divided into seven sections representing chronological and regional groupings. Each section contains an introductory essay that places the works in historical context to provide an overview of the social and political forces that shaped the eras and regions in which the works were created. Also included is a section on artists' books. In addition to illustrating the works in full color, Women Artists offers a portrait of each artist, a brief biographical essay with a discussion of her work, and a description of the piece shown. Endnotes and a complete listing of the artists whose works constitute the museum's 2,600 holdings are provided as well. With its dynamic design, clear organization, and authoritative stature as a publication of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Women Artists invites readers to explore the individual visions of some of the world's most creative women
