Rachel Whiteread (born 1963-2003) is a British artist, best known for her sculptures, which typically take the form of casts, and first woman to win the Turner Prize.
Whiteread is one of the so-called Young British Artists, and exhibited at the Royal Academy's Sensation exhibition in 1997. She is probably best known for Ghost, a large plaster cast of the inside of a room in a Victorian house, and for her resin sculpture for the empty plinth in London's Trafalgar Square. -Wikipedia Last Updates May 4, 2008
