Miriam Schapiro: Shaping the Fragments of Art and Life
New York and Lakeland, FL Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers; Polk Museum of Art 1999 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
Cloth, 160 pp., illus. (chiefly col.), biblio., index; 29 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Remainder mark/tail edge. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. Authoritative survey of the American feminist artist Miriam Schapiro (b. 1923), who cofounded the Feminist Art Program at the California Institute of the Arts with Judy Chicago. She was identified with the Pattern & Decoration movement in the 1970s and '80s. "A pioneering force in the feminist art movement of the 1970s, Miriam Schapiro (b. 1923) is an internationally renowned artist. In this, the only comprehensive work on Schapiro, feminist art historian Thalia Gouma-Peterson traces Schapiro's career from her early gestural canvases to her legendary collaborations with other women artists to her femmages (feminist-oriented collages) to her tributes to female artists of the past. Best known for her large heart- and fan-shaped canvases layered with fabric and paint, Schapiro helped launch the Pattern and Decoration movement of the 1970s and '80s and developed a richly decorative style that has influenced a generation of younger artists. Noted scholar Linda Nochlin contributes an insightful foreword, while Gouma-Peterson draws from Schapiro's writings to convey the artist's reflections on art, art history, and the feminist movement. / THALIA GOUMA-PETERSON is professor of art history and museum director at the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio. She has curated numerous exhibitions and written for many art magazines. She is co-author of Abrams' Breaking the Rules: Audrey Flack: A Retrospective 1950-1990. Gouma-Peterson lives in Oberlin, Ohio. LINDA NOCHLIN is the Lila Acheson Wallace Professor of Modern Art at the Instiitute of Fine Arts, New York University, and a pioneering scholar of feminist art history. She has written a number of books and is a contributor to Abrams' The Power of Feminist Art." - Publisher.

American Artists on Art: From 1940 to 1980, Johnson, Ellen H. (Edited by)

American Artists on Art: From 1940 to 1980
New York Harper & Row, Publishers; Icon Editions 1982 0064301125 / 9780064301121 Paperback Very Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xii, 274 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 23 cm. Tight, clean copy. Corner crease/front cover. "The fact that so much of modern art has devoted itself to the exploration and assertion of its own identity is reflected in, but does not explain, the increasing amount of writing and talking on the part of contemporary artists. Rather, the whole history of the changing role of art and artists in a democratic, industrial, and technological society stands behind the spate of artists' words and the public's hunger for them - even some of the general public out there beyond art's little circle. Statements by artists appeal somewhat the way drawings do: they bring us, or at least they hold the promise of bringing us, closer to the artist’s thoughts and feelings and to an understanding of his or her modus operandi; they hold the keys to a mysterious realm. And sometimes they offer us the sheer pleasure of good reading. Such is the primary raison d'être of this book. Its other motivation is educational, and stems from the frustrating lack, in teaching contemporary art, of any single compilation of statements by American artists from 1940 to the present. This anthology differs in several respects from those others that do include documents of American art since 1940. The selection I have made is devoted exclusively to statements of artists; it is limited to the last four decades; it presents in a single volume a representative and fairly comprehensive coverage of major developments in American art beginning with Abstract Expressionism; and, whenever possible, it cites the first, or among the very earliest, documents signalizing a shift in the definition, intent, or direction of art." - Publisher.
