Women artists have made a huge contribution to contemporary mainstream art, and their rise to international prominence has accompanied the development of feminism, feminist theory and history of art. Jo Anna Isaak's important new study of the work of women artists discusses the work of individual women artists in the context of contemporary art practices and in relation to key feminist issues in art history.Isaak looks at the work of a diverse range of artists including women from the United States, the former Soviet Union and the United Kingdom - discussing, among others, the work of Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman and the Guerilla Girls. Isaak discusses work by 20th century Soviet women artists, providing a fascinating case study of the production of art in non-Western economic, political and ideological circumstances.
