A Library of Women Artists

In The Museum of Modern Art's groundbreaking survey, Modern Women, Griselda Pollock writes, "We cannot accept that women somehow are just less creative than men, less intelligent, less innovative, less thoughtful, or less important as articulators of modern human experience. It is unhistorical. It would also be completely unmodernist to do so." This library collects key surveys and monographs on many of the influential women artists of the past century.
