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,GreatWomenArtistsreflects 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.
