Over half of all the visual artists working today are women, but the paintings and sculptures shown in many galleries and museums tell a different story because they’re usually the work of men. In this book Kate Pankhurst, descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst, tells the fascinating stories of some of history’s most talented female artists.
* Express your feelings and find your identity through art with Frida Kahlo
* Run away to the circus and paint with Laura Knight
* Help bring talented artists into the spotlight with Peggy Guggenheim
* Challenge racism and segregation by creating powerful art with Faith Ringgold
Including comic strips, family trees, maps and more, Fantastically Great Women Artists and Their Stories is a celebration of just some of the women whose creativity and dreams have made a mark on the world.
A fantastic gift for girls and boys alike!
