Judy Chicago is one of the most influential artists of our time-and now there's an important new reference that pays tribute to the four-decade career of this fabulous artist. Published in conjunction with an exhibition to be held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Fall and Winter 2002, Judy Chicago is filled with resplendent, full-color reproductions spanning the entire range of her work: the early years in California; the feminist work; the Dinner Party years; the Birth Project years; the Powerplay series; the Holocaust Project; and finally, her autobiographical and recent work. This invaluable guide also features never-before-reproduced art from her revolutionary pre-Dinner Party years, as well as a revealing, one-on-one interview by Lucy Lippard with Judy Chicago herself; a foreword by Elizabeth A. Sackler; an introduction by art historian Edward Lucie-Smith; and enlightening text written by curator Vicki D. Thompson Wylder.

A "public historian" and primary patron of Judy Chicago (b. 1939), Sackler edits her first book for the National Museum of Women of the Arts in Washington, DC, to coincide with an exhibit there this fall. Sackler, who contributes a foreword, deems Chicago a genius, virtually a living icon of feminist art. Chicago's dedication to consciousness raising and butterfly/vagina or "cunt imagery" appears in her many paintings, performances, installations, crafts, and multimedia projects. Many works are documented here in 100 color plates; 20 detail her well-known "The Dinner Party" (1979), a collaboration featuring table settings that honor 39 women. This book contains contributions by Edward Lucie-Smith, who defines Chicago's moral vision; Lucy Lippard, who interviews her; and curator Viki D. Thompson Wylder, who offers a fine essay on Chicago's oeuvre. Sackler's book covers Chicago's most important works and presents the new and potentially very influential interview with Lippard; it is recommended along with Lucie-Smith's Judy Chicago: An American Vision (2000), which contains plates of larger scale and is written by a well-known critic with access to the artist and her studio. Recommended for large and university collections. Mary H. Bruce, Cutler Memorial P.L., Plainfield, VT
