Elaine de Kooning, Bullfight, 1959 - Women of Abstract Expressionism

This beautiful and scholarly survey accompanies an exhibition at Denver Art Museum and celebrates the often unknown female artists of Abstract Expressionism. Artists featured in the book includes Mary Abbott, Jay DeFeo, Perle Fine, Helen Frankenthaler, Sonia Gechtoff, Judith Godwin, Grace Hartigan, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Deborah Remington, and Ethel Schwabacher.

Lavishly illustrated with full-colour plates emphasising the expressive freedom of direct gesture and process at the core of the movement, this book features biographies of more than forty artists, offering insight into their lives and work. Essays by noted scholars explore the techniques, concerns, and legacies of women in Abstract Expressionism, shedding light on their unique experiences.
