Thematic tracings of the feminine presence in art. A book with an original approach, full of fine illustrations, ideas, historical and philosophical stimuli.
[Art from a feminine viewpoint. Women artists from the Renaissance to the 21st century] This volume traces the presence of women in art, from the Renaissance to the present, discovering that no specifically “feminine” approach exists. Instead, there exist many different women who have made and make art: some famous, others less so. From Artemisia Gentileschi to Giulia Lama, Louise Breslau to Berthe Morisot, Frida Kahlo to Benedetta Cappa Marinetti, a voyage across the centuries to discover simply great artists, because as Alice Neel said, “art doesn’t care if you are a woman or a man. What you do need is talent and you have to work like mad”.
