Description - Nancy Spero by Jon Bird

This text examines three decades of work by the artist, Nancy Spero. Her subject matter, the depiction of women, has ranged from the writings of Artaud to the Vietnam war. She collages and imprints her images of contemporary goddesses onto long papyrus-like friezes that scroll around walls, combining totemic figures with mythological and historical chronicles. This book also includes Spero's own writings many of which are published for the first time. The book is part of a series of studies of important artists of the late-20th century. Each title offers a comprehensive survey of the artist's work, providing analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration.
