Broad Strokes : 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (In That Order) by Bridget Quinn


To this day, major women artists continue to be excluded from the mainstream art canon, art exhibitions and even art textbooks. Broad Strokes is the informative and entertaining corrective to that omission. In each chapter, art historian Bridget Quinn delves into the fascinating life and career of one of fifteen remarkable artists (some familiar, some less so) in text that’s smart, feisty, educational, and a darn good read.

Gorgeously illustrated with beautiful reproductions of the artists’ works, plus contemporary portraits of each artist by Lisa Congdon, this is a thought-provoking and riveting tour of the distaff side of art history, from the Renaissance to Abstract Expressionism.
