DELMONICO BOOKS/MODERN ART MUSEUM OF FORT WORTH

Women Painting Women

Edited with text by Andrea Karnes. Preface by Marla Price. Text by Emma Amos, Faith Ringgold, Lorna Simpson.

Women Painting Women

Replete with complexities, abjection, beauty and joy, Women Painting Women offers new ways to imagine the portrayal of women, from Alice Neel to Jordan Casteel

A thematic exploration of nearly 50 female artists who choose women as subject matter in their works, Women Painting Women includes nearly 50 portraits that span the 1960s to the present. International in scope, the book recognizes female perspectives that have been underrepresented in the history of postwar figuration. Painting is the focus, as traditionally it has been a privileged medium for portraiture, particularly for white male artists. The artists here use painting and women as subject matter and as vehicles for change. They range from early trailblazers such as Emma Amos and Alice Neel to emerging artists such as Jordan Casteel, Somaya Critchlow and Apolonia Sokol. All place women—their bodies, gestures and individuality—at the forefront.
The pivotal narrative in Women Painting Women is how the artists included use the conventional portrait of a woman as a catalyst to tell another story outside of male interpretations of the female body. They conceive new ways to activate and elaborate on the portrayal of women by exploring themes of the Body, Nature Personified, Selfhood and Color as Portrait. Replete with complexities, realness, abjection, beauty, complications, everydayness and joy, the portraits in this volume make way for women artists to share the stage with their male counterparts in defining the image of woman and how it has evolved.
Artists include: Rita Ackermann, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Emma Amos, María Berrío, Louise Bonnet, Lisa Brice, Joan Brown, Jordan Casteel, Somaya Critchlow, Kim Dingle, Marlene Dumas, Celeste Dupuy-Spencer, Nicole Eisenman, Tracey Emin, Natalie Frank, Hope Gangloff, Eunice Golden, Jenna Gribbon, Alex Heilbron, Ania Hobson, Luchita Hurtado, Chantal Joffe, Hayv Kahraman, Maria Lassnig, Christiane Lyons, Danielle Mckinney, Marilyn Minter, Alice Neel, Elizabeth Peyton, Paula Rego, Faith Ringgold, Deborah Roberts, Susan Rothenberg, Jenny Saville, Dana Schutz, Joan Semmel, Amy Sherald, Lorna Simpson, Arpita Singh, Sylvia Sleigh, Apolonia Sokol, May Stevens, Claire Tabouret, Mickalene Thomas, Nicola Tyson and Lisa Yuskavage.

Hot book alert: ‘Women Painting Women’ is out now!

Painted in 1965, Faith Ringgold’s “Early Works #25: Self-Portrait” is reproduced from new release Women Painting Women, published to accompany the exhibition currently on view at Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Featuring work by rising and established artists from the 1960s through the present—including Somaya Critchlow, Nicole Eisenman, Luchita Hurtado, Alice Neel and Amy Sherald, among many others—this volume features 65 color reproductions and texts by Andrea Karnes, Marla Price, Emma Amos, Lorna Simpson and Ringgold, whose writing on the 1970s women artists’ movement in New York is excerpted. “Artists and other folk, both male and female, were beginning to demand explanations of the women’s art movement. ‘Is there a women’s art, and if so, what is it?’ was the constant question posed to us. The concept of making female images as opposed to male, and black images as opposed to white or abstract, was the crux of the issue. ‘Who needs all this talk about black art and women’s art?’ some artists would say. ‘I’m just an artist who happens to be black or a woman.’ It was a real challenge to try to define oneself and one’s art outside the narrow parameters of the mainstream art world. But we were doing this and it felt good.” continue to blog
