Women in Art is an EMPOWERING and INSPIRATIONAL celebration of some of the most iconic and fearless women who paved the way for the next generation of artists. From well-known figures such as Frida Kahlo and Dame Vivienne Westwood to lesser-known artists including Harriet Powers (the nineteenth-century African American quilter) and Yoyoi Kusama (a Japenese sculptor), this charmingly illustrated and inspiring book highlights the achievements of 50 notable women in the arts. Covering a wide array of artistic mediums, this fascinating collection also contains infographics about artistic movements throughout history, statistics about women's representation in museums, and notable works by women who have inspired the world from the 11th century to today.


There were three of these books in the sale focusing in on the great stories and lives of women in Art, Science and Sport. The layout of the book is brilliant, gorgeously illustrated in a fun way with each double page spread focusing in on one woman’s story, gradually going through history to highlight achievements that have most likely been overlooked. It’s a great way of kicking off interest to find out more as well.
