Item description for After the Revolution: Women Who Transformed Contemporary Art by Linda Nochlin Eleanor Heartney...

The rise of women artists in the late 20th century, viewed through the work of twelve key figures.

"Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?" asked the prominent art historian Linda Nochlin in a provocative 1971 essay. Today her insightful critique serves as a benchmark against which the progress of women artists may be measured. In this book, four prominent critics and curators describe the impact of women artists on contemporary art since the advent of the feminist movement. Following a comprehensive essay assessing the changes in the situation of women artists, the authors examine in depth the careers of twelve outstanding artists--Marina Abramowicz, Louise Bourgeois, Ellen Gallagher, Ann Hamilton, Jenny Holzer, Elizabeth Murray, Shirin Neshat, Judy Pfaff, Dana Schutz, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, and Nancy Spero--and explore each artist's accomplishments and her influence on contemporaries and on younger men and women artists. A preface by Nochlin and a concluding essay with extensive statistical documentation frame this essential volume.
