#3 Guerrilla Girlsā€™ Bedside Companion to the History of Western Art

No Title

No Description

The Guerrilla Girls have been battling bias against women in art since 1985.Ā This book is an eye opener, showcasing works of art in the book then givingĀ the backstory and how women fit or as was usually the case, didn't fitĀ into the work!Ā Guerrilla Girls don't want to say anything bad about geniuses of theĀ Italian Renaissance like Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael, or Caravaggio,Ā but let's face it, it's guys like them who made things tough for womenĀ artists.

Starting with them, art history is written as the story of oneĀ heroic white male artist following another.Ā Being a female artist myself, I found the book quite revealing and closedĀ the book with a better understanding of why there are so many challengesĀ being a female artist!Ā The book is full of great illustration and to an artist fun to read!
