s a major new publication, GREAT
WOMEN ARTISTS, is launched by Phaidon, we look at the work of leading female artists whose work is offered for sale in this week's Contemporary Art auctions. Below is an excerpt from the book, which Sotheby's clients can purchase with a 20% discount.
"Many do not consider their sex a primary aspect of their artistic practice. This is not a survey of feminist art or a selection of art about ‘female experience' and ‘women’s subjects’. The artworks chosen more often than not transcend issues of gender, and instead serve to demonstrate the widest variety of approaches to materials, technique, form and subject matter. Taken as a whole, it is a testament to the extensive work that has been undertaken over several decades to research artists who had been written out of history and it is also a celebration of the continuing creativity of women across the world today." — Rebecca Morrill.
