Women Painting Women


Women Painting Women explores and celebrates the ways in which female artists conveyed stories and identities outside the male gaze. The book contains portraits of women from 1960s to today with text by Andrea Karnes, shedding light on how early trailblazers (like Emma Amos and Alice Neel) and contemporary artists (like Jordan Casteel and Somaya Critchlow) utilized painting to portray women in their complexities, joy, beauty and abjection.
