Product Description
Miriam Schapiro Notecard Folio
Printmaker, painter, collage-artist, and lecturer Miriam Schapiro (American, 1923–2015) gained attention as a leader in both the Feminist Art Movement and the Pattern and Decoration Movement. A pioneering feminist, Schapiro was inspired by women’s traditional art to create collage compositions using commonplace materials—such as lace, fabric scraps, buttons, rickrack, sequins, and tea towels—for which she coined the term femmage.

During her five-decade career, Schapiro was the recipient of many prestigious awards, including the College Art Association’s 2002 Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Skowhegan Medal for Collage, and six honorary doctorates. Her diverse accomplishments include a large-scale femmage for the Orlando Airport, stained-glass windows for Temple Sholom in Chicago, a thirty-five-foot pair of painted aluminum and stainless steel dancers, Anna and David, installed in Rosslyn, Virginia, and Rondo, a book of original dance and personal images. Schapiro‘s paintings hang in the permanent collections of museums throughout the world, including the Hirshhorn in Washington, DC, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Contains 5 each of the following images:
