The MODERN WOMEN ARTISTS collection is a series published by Eiderdown Books to outline an alternative history of art.
The books reveal the story of important female artists whose art might otherwise be overlooked, overshadowed or forgotten. Working across a range of disciplines and artistic styles in the first half of the twentieth century, all of the women included in this series were 'modern'.
Read together, these books begin to redress the untold history of modern art.
No 6: EILEEN AGAR by Laura Smith
Eileen Agar (1899-1991) was an artist who explored painting, photography, collage and sculpture. Her independent and inventive experiments with assemblage and colour linked her work inextricably with two major art movements of European twentieth century culture: Cubism and Surrealism.
Laura Smith introduces us to a spirited an lyrical artist who found inspiration in beach-finds, the natural world, mythology and classical ideas, and combined them into her own striking examples of modern art.
