Anonymous was a woman: a documentation of the Women’s Art Festival + a collection of letters to young artists

Valencia, CA: Feminist Art Program. California Institute of the Arts, 1975. Profusely illustrated in b/w. 136 pp. Paper covers decorated with photographs of all 18 artists in the book. 21.6 x 14.2 cm. The second half of the book contains letters from 71 artists, including Eleanor Antin, Lynda Benglis, Joan Brown, Vija Celmins, Judy Chicago, Grace Hartigan, Lee Krasner, and others. Very scarce. In an evocative footnote to this subject, a brief item in “Findings” in the December 2013 Harper’s states: “Most cave paintings in France and Spain were made by women, at a time when male and female humans’ hand shapes were apparently more dimorphic [i.e., differentiated]…” twenty thousand years ago. Now, that’s anonymous. Fine condition. **Free domestic shipping with direct order. Item #55302

Price: $125.00
