How Women are Sculpting their Own History

50 Women Sculptors

Dr Joanna Sperryn-Jones

As a further reappraisal of women in the arts, this fully illustrated volume challenges the myth that, as a physically challenging medium, sculpture found women artists wanting in the strength and skill to work with traditional materials. Highlighting the lives and works of dozens of women sculptors from the 1880s to the present, many of whom have pushed the boundaries of the genre far beyond their male counterparts, it includes stellar names such as Louise Bourgeois, Niki de Saint Phalle, Barbara Hepworth, Yayoi Kusama, Cornelia Parker and Rachel Whiteread, as well as lesser known artists.
