will publish Great Women Artists an
extensive illustrated book on women artists that reflects an era
where art made by women is more prominent than ever. The book tells
the stories of over 400 artists spanning 500 years and reveals a
parallel yet equally engaging history of art for an age that
champions a great diversity of voices.
According to information published on the Phaidon website, Great Women Artists is the most extensive fully illustrated book of women artists ever published. It reflects an era where art made by women is more prominent than ever, where galleries, museums and the art market are waking up to previously overlooked female artists, past and present. Great Women Artists reveals a parallel yet equally engaging history of art for an age that champions a greater diversity of voices.
Great Women Artists tells stories of over 400 artists who span 500 years. The oldest, Properzia de’ Rossi, was born in 1490 in Bologna; while the youngest, New Yorker Tschabalala Self, is still in her twenties. It’s organised from A-to-Z by surname so readers can easily find their way around, and works from different eras become juxtaposed.
It includes historic women who were hugely successful artists in their own lifetimes, but who were then excluded from written accounts in the centuries that followed, such as Angelica Kauffman, Judith Leyster and Artemisia Gentileschi. However, in some cases, those featured in Great Women Artists were far from obscure in their own era; consider Marisol, the French sculptor who is said to have been a bigger art star than Andy Warhol back in the 1960s.
Aside from the brilliant imagery, the book is filled with fascinating facts, vignettes and insights. Readers can discover more about Anni Albers, who, in 1949, became the first designer to have a solo exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art; they can delight in Alma Thomas’s work; who was the first African-American woman to have a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and they can revel in the work of Diane Arbus , the first photographer to be included in the Venice Biennale.
Great Women Artists draws in part from Phaidon’s 1994 best seller, The Art Book, which was also notable for its inclusion of a number of female artists, at a time when some other popular art history books were still failing to do so. “In the quarter century since then, diversity in art history – with regard to race as well as gender – has continued to expand,” writes editor Rebecca Morrill in the book’s introduction. “History is no longer perceived as a single narrative that represents and serves only one section of society, but rather a tangle of interwoven stories that coexist rather than compete for dominance.”
This timely update might seem superfluous, in an age when many believe female figures do have equal prominence, power and representation in the art world. However, as Morrill points out, even today, “male artists are still likely to be more successful by any number of measures. They are more likely to have representation by a commercial gallery,” she writes. “They achieve higher prices in the art market. They are more likely to be written about by critics and art historians (who are themselves, more likely to be male).”
Great Women Artists won’t right these wrongs, but it will serve as a great primer for anyone keen to explore the work of lesser-known practitioners; it will please proud feminists eager to get a handle on the art world; and it will delight anyone who enjoys great painting, photography, sculpture, video and performance art.
this partnership with Phaidon, Kering is strengthening
its commitment to women in the arts. A major priority for the Group,
Kering’s support of the empowerment of women extends into the world
of arts and culture through the Women In Motion program. This
support also manifests through the Kering Foundation which has
been combating violence against women worldwide for over 10 years.

Kering Foundation’s partners: the non-profit Promundo-US, a
leading organization in promoting gender justice, preventing violence
against women by engaging boys and men as partners with women and
funds raised by Phaidon and Artspace, will support the
launch of a Boyhood Campaign and Initiative co-developed by
Promundo and the Kering Foundation, alongside other
partners, including those focused on girls’ empowerment. The Boyhood
Campaign and Initiative will shift the media and social narrative
around manhood and boyhood in the US and globally, and will support
parents, educators, coaches, and media makers with the resources they
need to raise, teach, coach, and set an example for boys to become
equitable and connected men. This will begin in the US with future
expansion to other countries.

project and features six artists and six unique prints, each in an
edition of 100. Cecily Brown, Lubaina Himid, Bharti Kher,
Catherine Opie, Jenny Saville, and Dana Schutz have
contributed to the portfolio, which seeks to raise close to $1
million for Promundo. Prints by these contemporary artists are
scarcely available, and this well-rounded portfolio offers collectors
the opportunity to acquire works at an accessible price while
supporting a worthy cause.
