Tee Corinne in Feminist Art Books Bulletin #4 (Oct 2001): (It) is an ambitious, beautifully illustrated book discussing the paintings and lives of three major twentieth-century American painters: Canadian Emily Carr (1871-1945), U.S.-born Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986), and
Mexican Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). Special focus is given to identity andto the way the artists related to the land.

Cassandra Langer about the catalog in The Gay and Lesbian Rewiew, March – April 2011, Volume 18, Issue 2: “PUBLISHED last year on the occasion of a major retrospective of Frida Kahlo’s work in the Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2010), and Bank Austria Kunstforum, in Vienna, the Frida Kahlo Retrospective is accompanied by a coffee table-sized catalog. It is a stunningly beautiful book with glorious color and black-and-white illustrations. (…) Art historian Hayden Herrera notes the dualities in Kahlo’s work: life and death, night and day, sun and moon, male and female. Prignitz-Poda follows up on Herrera’s work using the catalogue as a vehicle to develop her own theory about Kahlo’s fluid sexuality, and finally to reclaim her as heterosexual. The reasons for this claim escape me. The truth is that Kahlo was passionately bisexual and had affairs with both men and women throughout her turbulent marriage to Diego.” (…)

Women Together/Women Apart – Portraits of Lesbian Par
By Tirza True Latimer
Rutgers University Press, 2005
Paper ISBN 0-8135-3595-6; Cloth ISBN 0-8135-3594-8
Rutgers University Press: “What does it mean to look like a lesbian? […] In Women Together/Women Apart, Tirza True Latimer explores the revolutionary period between World War I and World War II when lesbian artists working in Paris began to shape the first visual models that gave lesbians a collective sense of identity and allowed them to recognize each other. Flocking to Paris from around the world, artists and performers such as Romaine Brooks, Claude Cahun, Marcel Moore, and Suzy Solidor used portraiture to theorize and visualize a “new breed” of feminine subject.”

Amazon.com: “Each of the extraordinary portraits made by photographer Annie Leibovitz for her book Women stands on its own. Looked at together, these “photographs of people with nothing more in common than that they are women (and living in America at the end of the twentieth century), all–well almost all–fully clothed,” writes Susan Sontag in the book’s preface, form “an anthology of destinies and disabilities and new possibilities.” Leibovitz[…] turns her lens on a wide range of ordinary and extraordinary female subjects: coal miners, socialites, first ladies, artists, domestic-violence victims, an astronaut, a surgeon, a maid. What she creates is a reflection of contemporary American womanhood that mirrors both women’s accomplishments and the challenges they still face individually and as a group.”

Amazon.com on the book: “… Zoe Leonard’s practice involves a type of cerebral roaming combined with carefully considered observation. For more than 20 years she has criss-crossed nature and culture, cityscapes and museums, always searching for signs that say something about structures, about natural and cultural conditions and the contradictions, parallels and connections among them. (…) The political aspects of her work form the backdrop of her constant struggle with shape, with imagery, with the union of symbols and content. This is the first book encompassing her complete oeuvre.”

This grand accumulation of viewpoints brings up issues as diverse as human interventions with nature and the function of landscape in inventing American historical narratives, as well as the technological evolution of image reproduction and dissemination.”
