Women, art, and society by Whitney Chadwick( Book )

102 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 4,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenges assumptions in seeing 'great' women artists, like Artemisia Gentileschi, as exceptions who 'transcended' their sex in producing major works of art. While acknowledging the many women whose contributions to visual culture since the Middle Ages have often been neglected and the role of art history in enabling access to these works, this critical survey provides much more than an alternative canon of women artists: it re-examines the works themselves and the ways in which they have been perceived as marginal, often in direct reference to gender. In her discussion of feminism and its influence on such a reappraisal, the author also addresses the closely related issues of ethnicity, class and sexuality. For this extensively revised, expanded and newly illustrated edition, Chadwick brings her pioneering book right up to date in the light of new research, while two new chapters focus on the work of contemporary, postmodern artists whose work is consciously informed by feminism.--Book jacket

Constructing dialogues between past, present and future, and acknowledging the growing role mediated images play in culture, here Ahtila, Just, Larsson and Karlsson Rixon explore the importance of images of gender and sexuality in formations of contemporary identity."--Jacket

The militant muse : love, war and the women of surrealism by Whitney Chadwick( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The militant muse' documents what it meant to be young, ambitious, and female in the context of an avant-garde movement defined by celebrated men whose backgrounds were often quite different from those of their younger lovers and companions. Focusing on the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, Whitney Chadwick charts five female friendships among the Surrealists to show how Surrealism, female friendship, and the experiences of war, loss, and trauma shaped individual women's transitions from someone else's muse to mature artists in their own right. Her vivid account includes the fascinating story of Claude Cahun and Suzanne Malherbe in occupied Jersey, as well as the experiences of Lee Miller and Valentine Penrose at the front line. Chadwick draws on personal correspondence between women, including the extraordinary letters between Leonora Carrington and Leonor Fini during the months following the arrest and imprisonment of Carrington's lover Max Ernst and the letter Frida Kahlo shared with her friend and lover Jacqueline Lamba years after it was written in the late 1930s. This history brings a new perspective to the political context of Surrealism as well as fresh insights on the vital importance of female friendship to its progress
Confessions of the Guerrilla Girls by Guerrilla Girls (Group of artists)( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1985, a group of anonymous women wearing gorilla masks and brandishing glue brushes have taken zap actions at the art world's "stale, male, Yale" establishment. Their wonderfully smart-ass posters (example: "Advantages of being a woman artist: Working without the pressure of success, knowing your career might pick up after you're eighty ... ") have bedecked city walls, converted elitist curators, become collector's items, and even found their way into museum collections. Their work - and this book - offers proof that humor is a great, blunt-edged weapon against evil. The Guerrilla Girls are a collective of female artists and art-world professionals. Their largest contingent is in New York, but they have also been sighted all over the United States, across Europe, and wherever truth, justice, and the American way of discrimination still prevail
