Synopsis: An essential addition to your art studies and women's studies collections

Expand your women's and art studies collections with St. James Press's newest reference. In the typical easy-to-use format Contemporary Women Artists provides users with a quality reference that is quick, concise, and convenient to use. This single volume provides biographical, bibliographical and critical information on more than 350 of the world's most prominent and influential 20th-century women artists, including important new artists.

A compendium of information on women in this field

Profiling practitioners in more than just the traditions of painting, and sculpture. Contemporary Women Artists features women working in such media as performance art, photography, video and installation art, collage, environmental art and more. Contemporary Women Artists offers a convenient reference on women artists that are of most interest to students, including:

  • Magdalena Abakanowicz
  • Laurie Anderson
  • Elizabeth Catlett
  • Judy Chicago
  • Camille Claudel
  • Frida Kahlo
  • Brarbara Kruger
  • Dorothea Lange
  • Maya Lin
  • Tina Modotti
  • Georgia O'Keeffe
  • Faith Ringgold

Other features include more than 200 black-and-white photographs of art work; general bibliography of titles covering women artists and their work; indexes to nationalities and media and guest foreword by Lucy R. Lippard, renowned art critic in the field of women artists. Entries include lists of exhibitions; personal comments by the artist, when available; and a critical essay.

From Booklist: A cursory look in nearly any art dictionary or encyclopedia will reveal that the majority of artists covered are male, interspersed with a small number of female artists such as Mary Cassatt, Frida Kahlo, and Dorothea Lange. Although the 1970s and 1980s saw the beginning of increased recognition of women artists, they still do not receive the widespread public awareness that their male counterparts enjoy.

This book is an effort to increase awareness of a broad range of women artists, including fiber artists, printmakers, multimedia artists, and performance artists, in addition to photographers, painters, and sculptors. Contemporary is defined as twentieth century, and the list of entrants ranges chronologically from Mary Cassatt (1844^-1926) to video artist Sadie Benning (b. 1973). A brief biographical sketch, a list of individual exhibitions, a selected list of group exhibitions, a list of public collections that include work by the artist, selected bibliographies by and about the artist, and a short critical essay by a specialist in the artist's field are included in each of the 350 entries. Permanent public installations are also listed where appropriate. The text is accompanied by more than 220 photographs of the artists and their works. The book is arranged alphabetically by artist and has a helpful index of the artists by their nationality (nearly 200 are American) and by the medium in which they work.

The one shortcoming of this resource is that it does not include an overall critical assessment that ties the artists together or that examines the issues they explore in their art. Patrons or students looking for broad analysis of trends in women's art would be better served by the Dictionary of Women Artists [RBB F 15 98], edited by Delia Gaze. However, a number of the artists included in the St. James volume, such as Jenny Holzer, Maya Lin, and Cindy Sherman, are omitted from Gaze's work. With well-written text, up-to-date exhibition information, and black-and-white illustrations of good quality, this will be a useful work for libraries where interest in contemporary women's art is high, as well as for libraries with large art collections. Recommended for academic and public libraries.
