Expands the canon of American landscape art to illuminate the contributions of women artists.
Illuminating the artistic contributions and perspectives of women, this book reinserts the important 19th-century American artist Susie Barstow into the history of the Hudson River School and presents contemporary artists who expand how we think about “land” and “landscape” today. Engaging multigenerational perspectives, it launches an expanded narrative that recenters women in the canon of American landscape art.
Well known during her lifetime, Susie Barstow (1836-1922) was widely celebrated and exhibited alongside Hudson River School artists Asher B. Durand and Albert Bierstadt but was later erased from American art history. It further explores how artists working today complicate and challenge landscape through multi-disciplinary artistic practices and diverse viewpoints. Featured contemporary artists include Teresita Fernández, Marie Lorenz, Tanya Marcuse, Mary Mattingly, Ebony G. Patterson, Anna Plesset, Wendy Red Star, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Cecilia Vicuña, Kay WalkingStick, and Saya Woolfalk. Paperback, 128 pages.
