Women, art, and society by Whitney Chadwick ( Book )
57 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3,976 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

Confessions of the Guerrilla Girls by Guerrilla Girls (Group of artists) ( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 64 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
