Interview Nov 08, 2019

Great Women Artists, a massive yellow-tinted book, is an extensive collection of art spanning over 500 years and featuring over 400 passionate, diverse artists—and they’re all women. The artists are from over 50 countries, each with their own backgrounds, cultures, and histories, and encompass various mediums, from painting and sculpture, to photography and video installations. The collection promotes art created by every type of woman, and reflects on an era when art made by women, for women, is more prominent than ever. ” Great Women Artists is the most extensive fully illustrated book of women artists ever published,” said Laurent Claquin, head of Kering Americas. “I think that’s very exciting. It also holds great significance and inspiration for women in the arts today.”
