This beautifully produced, richly detailed, and comprehensive survey of 50 influential women artists details their remarkable contributions to the art world. From the Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi (Italian, 1593–ca. 1656) and the seventeenth-century illustrator Maria Sibylla Merian (German, 1647–1717) to Impressionists Mary Cassatt (American, 1844–1926) and Berthe Morisot (French, 1841– 1895), and to modern icons such as Frida Kahlo (Mexican, 1907–1954), Georgia O'Keeffe (American, 1887–1986), and Louise Bourgeois (American, born France, 1911–2010), the most important female artists are profiled. For each there is a timeline highlighting significant events in her life; a succinct biography and information outlining her accomplishments and influence; additional resources to further study of the artist; and full-color reproductions of the artist's works. Packed with information, this stunning and absorbing book clearly illustrates the artistic achievements of women throughout history.
