Publisher's description: Wit, wisdom, and willfulness abound on page after page of this vibrant anthology from Gloria Fowler and up-and-coming illustrator Ellen Surrey. Featuring an unparalleled collection of real-life heroines of the art, design, and fashion industries, Mid-Century Modern Women in the Visual Arts is a celebration of some of the most creative and successful females of that era and their societal contributions. Enjoy original, colorful, and hand-painted portraits of each of the twenty-five chosen role models portrayed in her characteristic setting, accompanied by a carefully selected quote: each lovely lady's own words to live by. A short biography rounds out the introduction to each prominent figure of the 1930s to 60s, providing a key glimpse into the lives of such impressive women as fashion maven Coco Chanel, iconic painter Frida Kahlo, and It's a Small World designer Mary Blair. Discover Edith Head's humor, Ray Eames's inventive spirit, and Sister Corita Kent's life advice. Including a brilliant range of well-known women and those who certainly should be, this compilation makes for a treasured gift of inspiration for tweens to adults, who will come to appreciate the contributions of Yayoi Kusama, Georgia O'Keefe, Eva Zeisel, Florence Knoll, and many more.
