"Real change is underway, and today you can name a number of top-notch female artists. However, women are only just beginning." - The New Yorker

Five centuries of fascinating female creativity presented in more than 400 captivating works of art and one comprehensive volume.

Great Women Artists is the largest illustrated book on women artists ever published, reflecting an era in which women's art is more central than ever. In museums, galleries and on the art market, previously overlooked female artists, past and present, are now gaining recognition and appreciation. More than 400 artists from more than 50 countries and from 500 years of art history are presented here with a key work and a short text. This essential volume reveals a parallel but equally compelling history of art for a time that championed a greater diversity of voices.
