an ACTUAL conversation "Why do all these early feminist artists make art work that looks like 18 year old girls from SAIC?" "Because they all read and loved this book."

not subtle.

Recommends it for: researchers, art lovers
Shelves: art-books
For researchers interested in a vast perspective on the changes in art in the Post World War II era, I highly recommend reading this book. You cannot understand the changes that occured without understanding the feminist movement in art.
Jai M {The Crazy Cat Lady}
An educational introduction to feminist art. Obviously not a world-wide, comprehensive history.
But, it gets you started, and shares some of the most influential and relevant works of the then movement and time period, looking from an American point of view ( hey it's a 'blockbuster' book).
