The artist's mother : the greatest painters pay tribute to the women who rocked their cradles by Judith Thurman( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 245 libraries worldwide
This volume is a collection of reproductions of paintings and drawings of the mothers of thirty-three notable artists, this book offers a quick overview of art history and a brief survey of women's lives from Albrecht Dürer's mother in 1490 to Andy Warhol's mother in 1974. A combination of art history and social history, the book's basic format is simple and effective -- a brief essay about the artist and the artist's mother on the left side, the picture of her on the right. Regardless of style or medium, the artists all approached their mothers with an unsentimental, unsparing eye. Relationships between them jump off the page. The images are boldly executed in a wide variety of styles. Many of the male all-stars -- Rembrandt, Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Picasso are represented; they are joined by female artists such as Anguissola, Cassatt, and Kahlo
