Historically, major women artists have been excluded from the mainstream art canon. Aligned with the resurgence of feminism in pop culture, Broad Strokes offers an entertaining corrective to that omission. Art historian Bridget Quinn delves into the lives and careers of 15 brilliant female artists in text that's smart, feisty, educational, and an enjoyable read. Replete with beautiful reproductions of the artists' works and contemporary portraits of each artist by renowned illustrator Lisa Congdon, this is art history from 1600 to the present day for the modern art lover, reader, and feminist.

Review:

Named a Top 10 Spring 2017 Book in Memoirs/Biographies by Publishers Weekly

“Your Art History 101 syllabus just got a lot more fun.” —O, the Oprah Magazine

Named one of the 23 best art history books of all time by Book Authority

“A terrific essay collection with quick and pithy profiles of famous and not-famous women artists—Alice Neel, Louise Bourgeois, Lee Krasner, Kara Walker, etc. Spunky, attitudinal, SMART writing, excellent color reproductions.” —Susan Stamberg, NPR

“Inspiring, charming, and eye-opening.” —The Millions

“In her entertaining and accessible debut, Quinn mixes biography, art history, and women’s studies to shed light on 15 women artists.... The color reproductions add to this book’s appeal, giving readers a chance to appreciate the artists’ work as well as Quinn’s upbeat writing.” —Publishers Weekly

“Can you name five women artists? That question, which launched a recent social media campaign, receives a beautiful answer in art historian Quinn and illustrator/writer Congdon’s accessible and intimate tour of 15 female artists from the 17th century to the present.” —Library Journal

“As its title suggests, Broad Strokes isn’t stuffy. There’s plenty of scholarship here about women artists over the centuries, but Quinn combines her research with a lively, breezy tone that turns her subjects into more than feminist symbols. They’re masters in their own right, bold and brilliant despite the limits they faced.” —Christian Science Monitor
