The engaging paintings of Joan Snyder have never been easily categorized. Though often placed under various art-movement umbrellas-Abstract Expressionism, lyrical abstractionism, or feminism-it is the changing nature of her work that has kept her in the spotlight since she first rose to prominence in the 1970s.
In the first major book on this influential feminist artist, art historian Hayden Herrera explores Snyder's beautiful mixed-medium works and their fascinating combination of personal iconography, female imagery, aggressive brushstrokes, and accomplished formalism. Gorgeously illustrated with 140 images, this lush volume includes decades of Snyder's most important work, including Vanishing Theatre/The Cut, Moonfield, Oratorio, Should You Wonder, and Women Make Lists. This rich collection is sure to become the definitive look at an artist whose unique vision has inspired art lovers for decades. The release of this book accompanies a traveling retrospective exhibition of Snyder's work that is scheduled to open at The Jewish Museum in New York in August 2005.
