The Art of Betty Woodman: Metropolitan Museum of Art Exhibition catalog
The Art of Betty Woodman presents a retrospective of the artist's work. Woodman began working with clay. The vase was her earliest subject, and over time, has become her most salient. For Woodman, the vase can be a vessel, a metaphor, or an art-historical reference. Her work alludes to numerous sources, including Minoan and Egyptian art, Greek and Etruscan sculpture, Tang Dynasty works, majolica and porcelain, Italian Baroque architecture, and the paintings of Picasso and Matisse.
