Women Artists & Writers

 

Imagine a dinner party. Round the table are Louise Bourgeois, Lee Miller, Elsa Schiaparelli, Nancy and Decca Mitford, Diana Cooper, Joan Mitchell, Kiki de Montparnasse and Gwen John. What a feast it would be.

Now imagine a bookshelf crowded with books on these women artists and writers. It would be a shelf filled with ideas, spirit, creativity and beauty.

With this rather romantic notion in mind, we have created a short catalogue of twenty books by or on women artists and writers of the twentieth century. There are some old favourites and some new discoveries.
