Women Painting WomenArtbook/D.A.P.
Women Painting Women features artists who use painting and women as subject matter and as vehicles for change. They range from early trailblazers such as Emma Amos and Alice Neel to emerging artists such as Jordan Casteel, Somaya Critchlow and Apolonia Sokol. All place women—their bodies, gestures and individuality—at the forefront.
Including nearly 50 portraits that span the 1960s to the present, the narrative in Women Painting Women is how the artists use the conventional portrait of a woman to tell another story outside of male interpretations of the female body. They explore themes of the Body, Nature Personified, Selfhood and Color as Portrait. Replete with complexities, realness, abjection, beauty, complications, everydayness and joy, the portraits in this volume make way for women artists to share the stage with their male counterparts in defining the image of woman and how it has evolved.
