A beautiful full color compilation of 75 women artists from different ethnic backgrounds touching on many different issues and experiences.

Women artists have produced a wealth of creative work. Their images reflect their experience, their struggles and the issues that influenced their historical moment. Unfortunately, until recent years much of their work has been lost, buried by social forces which failed to acknowledge the contributions of women.

Female Gazes helps us to reclaim their lives and art by focusing on seventy-five European and North American women artists from the Renaissance to the present.

From the United States we meet Native American and Black artists like Helen Hardin and Bessie Harvey, many lesser-known women and some like Mary Cassatt, Georgia O'Keefe, photographer Dorothea Lang, Lee Krasner and Judy Chicago whose images are more familiar. A glorious collection, Female Gazes is at once affordable and beautiful.
