Description - Concise Dictionary of Women Artists by Delia Gaze
The Concise Dictionary of Women Artists includes some 200 complete entries on individuals from the award-winning main dictionary. The best-known artists from the Middle Ages to the present are featured -- from Hildegard of Bingen and Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun to Paula Rego and Judy Chicago -- as well as a range of entries on significant but less well-known artists from all periods and all media: painters, sculptors, printmakers, textile artists and photographers. Also included in full are the most broad-ranging of the introductory surveys from the main volume: these essays place the work of the individual artists in national, aesthetic and gender contexts, and were much praised by reviewers of the original volume. In addition there are 32 pages of illustrations of the artists' work.
