Tate Publishing are thrilled to present a unique title – The Bigger Picture: Women Who Changed the Art World. Written by Sophia Bennett and illustrated by Manjit Thapp – the colourful and carefully crafted book explores the ground-breaking works and lives of some of the world’s most renowned female artists.
Sophia and Manjit will be discussing what it means to be a woman in the art world – which has until recently been focused on male artists.
When Tate first opened its doors in 1898, only 5 out of 253 works on display were by women. Things are changing, often thanks to the pioneering work of artists, activists, curators and critics celebrated in The Bigger Picture: Women Who Changed the Art World. With a foreword from Tate’s first female director, Maria Balshaw and original interviews with living artists such as Yayoi Kusama, Paula Rego and Judy Chicago – this beautifully illustrated book offers a unique perspective – demystifying the art world and inspiring a new generation.
