Grandma Moses in the 21st century by Jane Kallir( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "Grandma Moses and her paintings first came to public attention in 1940, when she was 80 years old. Her folk art, down-home personality, and background as a farmer and homemaker charmed the American public. By the time she died at the age of 101, she had completed over 1600 works of art and had established an international reputation. The work of "the white-haired girl," a self-taught artist who was a regular news feature for two decades, remained enormously popular at home and abroad even in the years after her death." "For this reevaluation of the work of Grandma Moses, Jane Kallir contributes an authoritative introduction and presents a catalogue that illustrates 87 of Moses' most important works. Kallir traces Moses' development as an artist from the first embroidered landscapes to the glorious paintings of her "old-age style." The Grandma Moses myth is tackled from various perspectives. Roger Cardinal examines the artist's working methods, exploring the relationship between the actual regional landscape and her interpretation of the area. Michael D. Hall places Moses within the context of contemporary artistic and social movements of the 1940s and 1950s. Lynda Roscoe Hartigan reveals how memory and imagination merge in the paintings. And Judith E. Stein discusses the role of gender in shaping the artist's reputation in the postwar years."
American women artists, 1830-1930 by Eleanor Tufts( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pottery by American Indian women : the legacy of generations by Susan Peterson( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The text and lavish illustrations focus on the American Indian women who have maintained and expanded the art in the twentieth century: the craft's six well-known matriarchs (including Lucy M. Lewis and Maria Martinez), family members who followed in their footsteps, and women working in the avant-garde. The author - herself a potter, with longstanding personal ties to the century's most important American Indian clay artists - personally introduces these remarkable women. In informal interviews, they explain their working methods and their aesthetic visions, allowing rare and surprisingly intimate glimpses into the fulfillment they gain from working the stuff of the earth into beautiful new forms
Role models : feminine identity in contemporary American photography( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In today's image-conscious world, photography is one of the most powerful mediators of our sense of self. Exploring the ways in which female identity is constructed and mediated through the art of photography is the central theme of this fascinating, fully illustrated book, published to accompany a major exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C." "This book features the work of two generations of artists whose portraiture, self-portraiture, and narrative photographs have indelibly inflected our understanding of gender and identity over the past thirty years. More specifically, it focuses on how role models and role-playing have been central to the art, meaning, and social function of contemporary photography. "Role Models" begins with the early 1980s, a time when many American women artists and photographers such as Eleanor Antin and Cindy Sherman realised that they could be both the creator and the subject of their work, while others such as Nan Goldin, Sally Mann, and Mary Ellen Mark sought to document the varied roles that women and girls try on in their struggle to find an identity that fits. "Role Models" also considers how, by the late 1990s, a generation of photographers including Anna Gaskell, Catherine Opie, and Nikki S. Lee had become exemplars for a new cadre of younger women artists by collapsing old boundaries between postmodern and documentary photography, establishing new post-feminist sensibilities and evolving more fluid concepts of female identity."--Jacket
Italian women artists : from Renaissance to Baroque by Carole Collier Frick( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are women artists of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque so relatively unknown today when, during their lifetimes, their artistic merits were celebrated by their foremost contemporaries? Italian Women Artists of the Renaissance and Baroque aims to provide the first survey of women professionally active as painters, engravers and sculptors in 16th and 17th century Italy, and to document the sociocultural context that contributed to shape their lives and oeuvres. This catalogue, published in association with the travelling exhibition which opens at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D. C., examines the artistic practices and achievements of these remarkable women who managed to gain public, if not international, acclaim. Featuring 60 outstanding works by a dozen of the foremost Italian female artists, this volume offers an unparalleled opportunity to understand their social, personal, and stylistic developments. This scholarly publication will undoubtedly make a significant contribution to the re-emergence of these women as artists of stature and thus constitute a new departure for historical investigations into the way gender has affected how we perceive works of art and into issues of attributions and art market economics

An imperial collection : women artists from the State Hermitage Museum( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Imperial Collection explores how women as patrons, painters, and subjects contributed to the cultural history of Russia. Eminent families formed collections and created artistic commissions that brought women artists to Russia and extended the influence of western European art to the royal court of the czars. Some women artists were allowed into the inner circles of the aristocracy, providing an "insider" view into the private side of court life. Artists whose works are explored in the book include Elisabeth Louise Vigee-Lebrun, who from 1795 to 1801 found refuge in St. Petersburg after the French Revolution forced her to flee her own country; French sculptor Marie-Anne Collot, who was commissioned by Catherine to produce a sculpture of Peter the Great, now one of the great landmarks of St. Petersburg; Scotswoman Christina Robertson, whose prestigious commissions to paint the women of the court give a refreshing perspective on the personal relationships of the Imperial family; and Angelica Kauffman, one of the few eighteenth-century women painters to tackle the challenging field of history painting, often with a heightened sensitivity to female roles. Works by these and many other women artists are explored in depth, alongside a ground-breaking study of the importance of the Academy of Arts, the bastion of the artistic establishment since it was founded by Empress Elizabeth in the mid-eighteenth century. This book will appeal to anyone interested in eighteenth-and nineteenth-century women artists, the history of Russian patronage of the arts, and Russian imperial history and culture

Royalists to romantics : women artists from the Louvre, Versailles and other French national collections( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rich collections of paintings and sculptures by women in the Louvre, Versailles, Fontainebleau, and other venerable French collections present an outstanding opportunity to explore the important contributions that women artists made in France between 1750 and 1848, a period that saw the waning of the ancien regime, the traumas of the French Revolution, the rise and fall of Napoleon, and the restoration of the monarchy. 'Royalists to Romantics' features some seventy-five paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings by thirty-five French women artists of this era. These stunning works both illuminate their makers' careers and offer a new narrative about the art world of the Revolutionary period. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, this beautifully illustrated book examines eighteenth-century French theories of sexual difference and their influence on the 'woman-artist question'; paradoxical Revolutionary attitudes toward women artists, who encountered as many new limitations as opportunities; and the complex ways that women marketed their reputations and managed their cultural positions in France's intricate social and artistic hierarchy. Accompanies a major exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC from February 24- May 31, 2012
