Broad strokes : 15 women who made art and made history (in that order) / by Bridget Quinn ; with illustrations by Lisa Congdon.
"This book chronicles the lives and art of 15 often overlooked female artists from the Renaissance to the modern day"-- Provided by publisher.
"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."--Publisher's description.
