Description

The book, signed by Miriam Schapiro, and its poster. 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. The exhibition poster, folded in eight, measures 33.5 x 23 inches open. 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…" twenty thousand years ago. Now, that's anonymous. Slight rubbing on the front cover near the spine. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.
