Summary
With its lavish color illustrations - the paintings and sculptures are all reproduced in full color - and numerous documentary pictures of the artists themselves, Women Artists: An Illustrated History provides an unprecedented wealth of visual material on the subject. This updated third edition adds several new international artists - including Mona Hatoum, Kiki Smith, Carne May Weems, and Rachel Whiteread - to bring the content up to the minute. Nancy G. Heller's text offers a lively overview of the obstacles that women encountered - restricted access to education and apprenticeship, social pressures to marry and mother, limited opportunities to travel and exhibit - but she most emphasizes the ingenious ways that generations of women artists circumvented these obstacles to establish themselves as well-respected professionals
