Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (In That Order)
$ 30.00

Historically, major women artists have been excluded from the mainstream art canon. As a study of the contributions women have made to art, Broad Strokes offers an entertaining corrective to that omission. Art historian Bridget Quinn explores the lives and careers of 15 brilliant female artists in a way that is smart, feisty, educational, and fun to read. Accompanied by beautiful reproductions of the artists' works as well as contemporary portraits of each artist by renowned illustrator Lisa Congdon, this is art history from 1600 to the present day for the art lover, reader, and feminist.
