This book is an excellent overview of the lives and careers of some key Surrealist women artists - and it was a wake-up call for me, when I realised that, despite several years of tertiay study in the field of Art History, the only artists I knew anything about was Frida Kahlo.
A good summary of some neglected figures in art.
Women Artists and the Surrealist Movement contains interesting and useful biographical information, color illustrations and some of the major female contributors to the surrealist movement including Frieda Kahlo, Leonora Carrington, and Leonor Fini. Chadwick provides the reader with useful biographical information that may have influenced the artists work. Women Artists contains an easy to use index , a list of the illustrations and their location in the book, and a brief biography of each author. This book is a wonderful reference for research or for personal interest.
