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.
Six artists contribute to a limited charitable portfolio of prints in support of Promundo Global.
Five centuries of fascinating female creativity presented in more than 400 compelling artworks and one comprehensive volume.
In museums, galleries, and the art market, previously overlooked female artists, past and present, are now gaining recognition and value. Featuring more than 400 artists from more than 50 countries and spanning 500 years of creativity, each artist is represented here by a key artwork and short text. This essential volume reveals a parallel yet equally engaging history of art for an age that champions a greater diversity of voices.
