Overview

Expanded to include an additional 29 artists, among them the 17th-century painter Josefa de Ayala; the 18th-century portraitist Catherine Read; the 19th-century sculptor Marcello; and the innovative American printmaker Caroline Durieux, the second edition of Women Artists is evidence of the growing interest in the lives and careers of women artists. Additional annotated entries are included for the painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors, and craftswomen represented in the earlier volume. Because of the amount of information now available on women architects, they are not included in the second edition. The main section of the book consists of 185 individual artist bibliographies, arranged by century from the early middle ages throughout the 20th century, with a cutoff birth date of 1930. A short biographical sketch introduces each artist; most of the bibliographies close with a list of public collections in which examples of the artist's work can be found. Piland treats the general subject of women artists in a bibliography that includes surveys, biographical dictionaries, catalogs, bibliographies, microfilm collections, slide sets, and dissertations. The final section is a selected bibliography on needlework, the traditional art of women. With 43 black-and-white reproductions. From reviews of the first edition, by Donna G. Bachmann & Sherry Piland (1978) "...immensely helpful...the first full-length bibliography in English that treats only women artists...providential..." —CHOICE "...recommended..." —LIBRARY JOURNAL

Compiled by one of the compilers of the first edition (1978), the second edition is an expansion of its predecessor. The materials cited remain almost all in English, but the number of artists has been increased from 161 to 185, and additional biographical references are provided for artists carried over from the earlier edition. The chronological range is from late Middle Ages through twentieth-century artists born before 1930, including painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers, and craftswomen. Architects have been dropped from this edition. In all, 29 artists appear for the first time The arrangement is the same as the first edition. Preceding the artist entries is a section on general works (biographical dictionaries, bibliographies, dissertations, etc.) grouped as books (including microfilm and slide sets), periodicals, and catalogs. A majority of the entries have brief descriptive annotations. The main part of the book, which contains entries for individual artists, is divided by century. Under the appropriate century, artists are entered alphabetically, each with a brief biographical sketch preceding the citations of information sources. Most entries list public collections where the artist's work can be seen. A six-page bibliography of books and periodicals on needlepoint follows the entries for individual artists. An insert of black-and-white art reproductions contains some new works The second edition of "Women Artists" merits the same comment the Board made about the first edition. It "will be useful in libraries where readers are deeply interested in art history or in feminist studies." Small libraries owning the first edition will have to decide whether acquisition of the second edition is vital to their users.
