A to Z of American Women in the Visual Arts (A to Z of Women)


A to Z of American Women in the Visual Arts is an informative reference work that covers American women in the world of the visual arts, from the eighteenth century to the present day. In addition to being regionally, chronologically, and culturally inclusive, the volume reflects a broad definition of visual arts, including photographers, architects, illustrators, craftspeople, and folk artists as well as painters and sculptors. This A-to-Z reference also traces the history of American women in the visual arts from its early origins as a creative and expressive outlet to its contemporary role in defining political and social agendas. More than 130 essays not only include basic biographical information but also emphasize the artistic achievements and contributions of these women. Suggestions for further reading and, where appropriate, Internet resources are included, making this reference a valuable addition to any art history, women’s studies, or general collection.
