Painting a Picture of Women Artists

Melanie's picture

In 1971, ARTnews magazine published an article by Linda Nochlin entitled, Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists? Perhaps the better title for the article is Why Has it Taken so Long for Great Women Artists to be Recognized? Below is just a sampling of three women artists who fall into that catagory. Alice Neel: The Art of Not Sitting Pretty by Phoebe Hoban, Lee Krasner: A Biography by Gail Levin, and Joan Mitchell: Lady Painter by Patricia Albers.
