Hardcover      ISBN: 1555953891
Some 500 objects now housed at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts constitute an extraordinary collection of art by women assembled by Philadelphia-based artist and collector Linda Lee Alter, beginning in the 1980s. This volume documents the collection in full-page plates supported by brief biographies of the artists, a profile of Alter and an interview, and ten essays by art historians and curators who discuss social, political, and cultural topics pertaining to women and the arts. Cozzolino (curator of modern art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts) provides an introduction--delighting in the collection itself and in the ways that PAFA audiences, faculty, students, and museum staff will benefit from it. The volume is oversize: 9.5x11.25". Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
