Forgotten Women The Artists is apparently from a series that attempts to reinstate its chosen subjects to their 'rightful positions' Forgotten is clearly a relative term as in order for the author to present its chosen subjects there needs be adeuate records in various forms and locations With information available 'forgotten' is inappropriate terminology; the subjects may be lesser known or not famous in their lifetimes but that may be by personal choice rather than being subdued or minimised by another as the author intimates and as applies to a very familiar example from the Photography sectionVivien Maier was employed as a nanny but had photography as a hobby working completely alone and prolifically in her off time collecting thousands of her own prints and hundreds of unprocessed film rolls over the years Her hobby remained private and secret from everyone and were it not that her remaining possessions were to be sold after her death the collection could have been lost or destroyed Several books and magazine articles were since published about her but she was never in her lifetime 'known' in the sense that a pop or film star would be and it was her choice to remain anonymous She therefore does not ualify to fit within the book's parameters and there may be othersThis book is primarily a collection of mini biographies but most importantly and regrettably does not use any examples from the artists's work where it exists and with Vivien Mayer and possibly others opportunities abound Words and the irrelevant drawings it offers are insufficient Without visual evidence the reader is expected to accept the author's arguments and is denied the opportunity to use personal judgementWith its known faults possibly than are immediately apparent the book loses authority With some facts erroneous by carelessness or misunderstanding the reason for the book's existence is brought into doubt and its aims open to uestion It and the remaining titles may work well within the sphere of 'Women's Studies' but otherwise not

I`m sorry to be rather a dissenting voice among all the very positive reviews here but I felt this book was something of a missed opportunityYes it is definitely a good thing that women artists receive recognition – male art historians and commentators have neglected and often wilfully written women out of history – that is well known and is being addressed by books like this; what is so disappointing is that beautifully presented as this volume is there isn't a single example of any of the artist's own works reproducedI can guess that this is probably due to copyright or similar issues but it still short changes the reader The illustrations are provided by a range of contemporary women graphic artists and are mainly representations of the women under discussionThe chapters are short; just an average of three pages or so offering a brief biography and a general idea of the artist's practice achievements and contextThe best feature is an extensive endnotebibliography section that identifies books and online references so that the reader can further pursue each artist and perhaps find a rounded representation of each individual's workAs an artist myself I was aware of a number of the artists featured through the research I do for my own interest and art projects so I had the advantage of familiarity with their works; it seems to me that if a book reuires one to access the internet for proper examples it has at some level failedAs a starting point this perhaps makes a good guide but it could have – or should have been something better 3 ½ stars

Forgotten Women The Artists is another entry in a great series of books which celebrates the achievements and stories of women through history who have been forgotten or erased This hardback volume is beautifully illustrated on good uality card and the raised rough surface of the 'post it note' on the cover contrasts well with the smooth texture of the image it coversBroken into six sections Forgotten Women The Artists covers a range of art forms abstract figurative performance & conceptual craft photography and design Between the sections 48 different female artists are introduced and their lives summarised in 2 3 pages alongside an invariably beautiful illustration the illustrations are all by contemporary female illustratorsHaving read through the book it has been interesting to get a short glimpse of the lives of different artists and I shall be looking further into a few of them However with the lack of any of the artists' own work represented in the book I found myself having to turn to Google to look up their art before I could fully click with what the text was saying I don't know of the cost of licensing was prohibitive or what but without including samples of the artists' work the book felt like it was reduced to the euivalent of a buzzfeed article '48 female artists you've never heard of' Only I'm sure buzzfeed would have included the artAnother minor personal irritation was the use of oversize text in the middle of paragraphs to emphasise certain sentences The choice of what was emphasised seemed random at times and the use of a techniue most popularly used in children's books seemed out of place in a serious context like thisOverall not as engaging or inspiring as I had hoped I absolutely love the idea of bringing recognition to forgotten women but this has not achieved that
