For a long time, visual arts were a male domain, in which women only played a role as coveted models. Individual artists such as Artemisia Gentileschi or Angelika Kauffmann are brilliant exceptions who owe their unusual careers not least to their progressive families. Only with the beginning of modernism did artistically active women increasingly fight their way into the public eye and occupy the space that was their due. This volume offers an inspiring overview of 50 important women artists from the Renaissance to the postmodern era. The authors report on unusual biographies and groundbreaking aesthetic approaches, they show world-famous masterpieces and little-seen new discoveries and thus provide a comprehensive and at the same time compact overview of female artists.

50 Artists You Should Know contains texts and illustrations on Marina Abramović, Louise Bourgeois, Sophie Calle, Camille Claudel, Isa Genzken, Eva Hesse, Hannah Höch, Jenny Holzer, Frida Kahlo, Käthe Kollwitz, Tamara de Lempicka, Maria, among others Sibylla Merian, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Gabriele Münter, Niki de Saint Phalle and Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun.
