From the 1960s to the millennium, Art and Feminism traces the changing
art practices, art historical debates, manifestos, challenges,
rediscoveries and reawakenings that characterize the dynamic,
continuing dialogue between feminism and contemporary art. Feminism has
had a crucial impact on late twentieth-century art, inspiring some of
the most pioneering developments in sculpture, painting, performance,
photography, film and installation.
The artistic stagnation of Vienna at the end of the nineteenth century
was rudely shaken by the artists of the Secession. Their works at first
shocked a conservative public, but their successive exhibitions, their
magazine Ver Sacrum and their dedication to the applied arts and
architecture soon brought them an enthusiastic following and wealthy
This book is the definitive overview of the richest, most controversial
and perhaps most thoroughly confusing epoch in the whole history of the
visual arts: the period from 1960 to the present. Although the modern
movement - unchallenged for the last six decades - has lost its
dominance, it has been replaced by no single new orthodoxy.
The age of the Baroque, between adsolutism and the Enlightenment, is
acknowledged as the last pan-European style. Long regarded as merely an
eccentric offshoot of the Renaissance, the Baroque represents a complex
and dynamic variety of form and expression in stark contrast to the
controlled moderation of Neoclassicism.
From the streets of New York to the walls of its most prominent
galleries, young graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) was

During Sandro Botticelli's lifetime (1444/45-1510), the influence of
his art scarcely reached beyond his native Florence, and following his
death he was soon forgotten. He was rediscovered in the 19th century by
At a time when artists were still primarily occupied with religious or
mythological subject matter, the great Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel
(c. 1525-1569) turned his eye on the everyday. Most of Bruegel's 45
surviving works, which are all reproduced in this book, record the
facts of 16th century life in rural or small town communities.

detail; it is full of felling and abundance that fills Cong Kim Hoa's

"I maintain", stated Gustave Courbet (1819-1877), "that painting is
clearly a concrete art whose existence lies only in the representation
of real and existing objects...." Courbet, who influenced and advised
the fledgling Impressionists, was an outstanding representative of a
naturalistic realism that highlights the contradictions and inequities
As you’ll find out in this guide to the fundamentals of cubism, there
is more to the genre than its most famous proponent. Cubism—often
identified by flattened, geometric shapes, overlapping, simplified
forms and fragmented spatial planes—was quite possibly the most
influential movement in 20th-century art.
Greek-born Italian painter Giorgio De Chirico (1888-1978) was hugely
influential in the early years of the Surrealist movement. His
paintings during the teens in Paris, where he moved in 1911, caused
such a stir that such important figures as Picasso and Paul Eluard
immediately praised them. This phase of his work,
Charts the life and work of Degas (1834 - 1917), a truly modern artist
of his time. It shows how Degas's work offers an almost voyeuristic
glimpse through the keyhole, catching women unawares at the most
intimate moments. Degas aimed beyond artistic definitions towards a
concept of unity.

master painter and draftsman whose work exemplifies the spirit of
German art. Dürer’s importance in the German High Renaissance was such
that he can be considered to embody the movement entirely.
Cretan-born painter Domenicos Theotocopoulos, better known by his
Spanish nickname, El Greco (c.1545-1614), studied under Titian in
Venice before settling down in Toledo. Commissioned by the church and
local nobility, El Greco produced dramatic paintings marked by
distorted figures and vibrant color contrasted with subtle grays.
It was never a sure thing that James Ensor, the great Belgian painter
of macabre and ghoulish scenes, would become a nationally revered
figure. James Ensor was unusual in many ways. Apart from his training
in Brussels, he spent his entire long life in Ostend, seemingly the
opposite of cosmopolitan.
During the first two decades of the 20th century, many artists famously
experimented with nonrepresentational expression. Taking cues from
ideas hinted as by artists such as El Greco, Goya, Van Gogh, and Munch,
Expressionists sought to transform reality rather than depict it in any
sort of literal fashion. Egon Schiele,

"Toteninsel" and including Dorothea Tanning, Max Ernst, Hans Bellmer’s
dolls, the Australian painter Sidney Nolan, Giger's monsters,
Italian artist Lucio Fontana tore apart the modern art
establishment—literally. Trained initially as a sculptor, Fontana
(1899-1968) blurred the lines between painting and sculpture by
creating works that combined both form and color in a spatial context,
most famously exemplified by his slashed canvases of the 1950s and 60s.
The solitude of man and the bleak beauty of nature are prominent themes
