Phaidon's Great Women Artists

Phaidon and Artspace are excited to announce a partnership with Kering, a global Luxury group committed to the empowerment of women, to launch Great Women Artists

 

Phaidon's Great Women Artists is the most extensive illustrated book on women artists ever published and reflects an era in which 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.

 

In celebration of Great Women Artists and with the support of Kering, Phaidon and Artspace are proud to launch a charitable portfolio of limited-edition prints to benefit Promundo, a global leader in advancing gender equality, preventing gender-based violence in partnership with men and boys. Artists featured in the book, Cecily Brown, Lubaina Himid, Bharti Kher, Catherine Opie, Jenny Saville, and Dana Schutz have contributed prints.
