Marlene Dumas is one of Holland's most internationally admired artists. A highly skilled 'painter's painter', she comments through her work on the state of painting today and asks the question: What does it mean to be a woman working within the predominantly male genre of expressionist art?

Dumas often chooses women, children and infants as her subject matter, and the relation between art and female beauty is a constant theme in her work. Dumas has exhibited since the late 1970s and has presented solo exhibitions at major international museums, including the the Tate Gallery, London. In this new series, the publication documents the artist's career to date, a survey of Dumas's key works, an interview commissioned especially for the book, a fully illustrated chronology charting exhibitions, significant projects and their critical reception.
