The engaging paintings of Joan Snyder have never been easily categorized. Though often placed under various art-movement umbrellas-Abstract Expressionism, lyrical abstractionism, or feminism-it is the changing nature of her work that has kept her in the spotlight since she first rose to prominence in the 1970s.

In the first major book on this influential feminist artist, art historian Hayden Herrera explores Snyder's beautiful mixed-medium works and their fascinating combination of personal iconography, female imagery, aggressive brushstrokes, and accomplished formalism. Gorgeously illustrated with 140 images, this lush volume includes decades of Snyder's most important work, including Vanishing Theatre/The Cut, Moonfield, Oratorio, Should You Wonder, and Women Make Lists. This rich collection is sure to become the definitive look at an artist whose unique vision has inspired art lovers for decades. The release of this book accompanies a traveling retrospective exhibition of Snyder's work that is scheduled to open at The Jewish Museum in New York in August 2005.

About the Author:

Hayden Herrera is an art historian and critic who has contributed articles to publications such as Art in America, Artforum, Arts, ARTnews, Connoisseur, House and Garden, and The New York Times Book Review. She has lectured widely, organized several exhibitions, and taught Latin American art at New York University. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Herrera is the author of Abrams' Mary Frank as well as Frida: The Biography of Frida Kahlo, Frida Kahlo-The Paintings, and Arshile Gorky: His Life and Work. She lives in New York.

From Booklist:

Women abstract expressionist painters have been neglected, but Joan Mitchell was the subject of a major retrospective in 2002, and now Joan Snyder, a painter whose questing work ventures into territory that would be called, years after her pioneering explorations, neoexpressionism, is accorded the attention she deserves in a volume of vibrant reproductions and enlightening and enjoyable commentary. Herrera, known best for her biography of Frida Kahlo, writes that Snyder's richly hued, dramatically textured, and palpably spiritual paintings "pulsate with energy." Snyder's works are symphonic and kinetic. Some resemble samplers or quilts, others depict fields both earthy and abstract, and yet others offer provocative variations on the motifs of Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove, Anselm Kiefer, and early Rauschenberg. Rooted in her life, her feminist perspective, and her communion with nature, Snyder's daring, high-voltage works reach for amplitude, emotional verity, and a connection with the "inner structure of matter." Herrera and her contributors offer just enough biography and criticism to establish an illuminating context for Snyder's paintings and then leave the viewer free to absorb these boldly expressive and enlightening works head-on.
