About this title


This intriguing introduction to contemporary women artists features details on the life and work of four artists: Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Alice Neel, and Faith Ringgold. "Sensitively written, the book is also beautifully designed."--Booklist, Starred Review. An ALA Notable Book for 1990.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4 Up The colorful artwork immediately engages the attention of anyone browsing through this collective biography. O'Keefe's arresting flower studies; Frida Kahlo's naive and symbolic self-portraits; Alice Neel's intense, sad-eyed children; and Faith Ringgold's intricate cloth pictures are marvelously reproduced. Sills' text lives up to the promise of the pictures. Her focus is not so much on the lives of these artists as on their art and the intensity of their vision. Enough is told of marriages and deaths, of family and education, to explain how each was influenced in the direction that she chose and why each was so deeply committed to the world of art. The selection of these four women, and the excellent quality of both the text and the art reproductions, result in a book which brings an enhanced understanding of contemporary art and an appreciation of the importance of women in modern art. Each of these women has achieved recognition and fame and each deserves to be introduced to young artists and readers. This book should be put in the hands of as many young people as possible. Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, N.J.
