Miriam Schapiro : shaping the fragments of art and life by Thalia Gouma-Peterson( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pioneering force in the feminist art movement of the 1970s, Miriam Schapiro (b. 1923) dared to challenge the marginalized role of women in the art world by creating a visual vocabulary to express women's experiences. In this illustrated book, the first comprehensive monograph on the artist, acclaimed art historian Thalia Gouma-Peterson traces the trajectory of Schapiro's career over five decades, from her gestural canvases of the 1950s, to her self-exploratory "Shrines" and geometric abstractions of the 1960s, to her large-scale femmages (feminist-oriented collages of paint and fabric) of the 1970s and 1980s, and finally to her autobiographical figural compositions of the 1980s and 1990s."--Jacket
