This text examines three decades of work by the artist, Nancy Spero.
Her subject matter, the depiction of women, has ranged from the writings of Artaud to the Vietnam war.
She collages and imprints her images of contemporary goddesses onto long papyrus-like friezes that scroll around walls, combining totemic figures with mythological and historical chronicles.
This book also includes Spero's own writings many of which are published for the first time.
On the Contemporary Artists Series "The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art.
These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about."-Artforum "The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art."-Time Out "A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists."-The Sunday Times "Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists.
Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment."-The Art Book
