This beautifully designed volume is an accessible, comprehensive treasure that spans art history from the Renaissance to the present, featuring eighty-six women artists from around the world. The book is divided into seven sections representing chronological and regional groupings. Each section contains an introductory essay that places the works in historical context to provide an overview of the social and political forces that shaped the eras and regions in which the works were created. Also included is a section on artists' books. In addition to illustrating the works in full color, Women Artists offers a portrait of each artist, a brief biographical essay with a discussion of her work, and a description of the piece shown. Endnotes and a complete listing of the artists whose works constitute the museum's 2,600 holdings are provided as well. With its dynamic design, clear organization, and authoritative stature as a publication of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Women Artists invites readers to explore the individual visions of some of the world's most creative women

Spanning the globe from eastern and western Europe to Turkey, Korea, Polynesia, and the United States, Imaging Dance brings together the work of thirteen dance and art scholars who interpret images of dance and dancing. The images date from the sixth century AD to the present, and include paintings, drawings, lithographs, etchings, wood-block prints, stone carvings, and photographs. Each chapter enhances appreciation of artistic renderings and contributes to understanding how people see and envision what they see. Through these engaging and richly illustrated accounts, scholars, students, and general readers will find information about contexts and settings in which dance occurs, socio-cultural attitudes towards dance and dancing, artistic techniques and conventions, religious and political philosophies, rituals, repertoire, and details of movement

Boxformations : at the Foundry Gallery( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exhibition of work by 10 artists from Washington D.C., presents contemporary approaches to exploring the box as form and metaphor, including traditional container-oriented boxes and less traditional, form and surface-oriented boxes where the container is closed and forces consideration of exterior treatment as carrier of artistic impact, rather than of contents as carrier which is more usual. This is why "Boxformations" is described as an "art with boxes exhibition" instead of "art in boxes exhibition."
