'It's hard to imagine any group of primary-aged children who wouldn't be inspired' BOOKSELLER
'An absolute must-have for every young person's bookshelf' HUFFINGTON POST
Over half of all the visual artists working today are women, but the paintings and sculptures shown in many galleries and museums tell a different story because they're usually the work of men. In this book Kate Pankhurst, descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst, tells the fascinating stories of some of history's most talented female artists.
Meet Frida Kahlo, who found the greatest muse for her art was indeed herself - painting became a way to express her feelings and find her identity. There's Laura Knight, the artist who ran away with the circus. And then there's Peggy Guggenheim, the art collector who helped bring many talented artists into the spotlight.
Including comic strips, family trees, maps and more, Fantastically Great Women Artists and Their Stories is a celebration of just some of the women whose creativity and dreams has made a mark on the world.
Women featured: Amrita Sher-Gil, Elisabeth Le Brun, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Faith Ringgold, Frida Kahlo, Kathe Kollwitz, Dame Laura Knight and Peggy Guggenheim.
