Editorial Reviews

“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

“Your Art History 101 syllabus just got a lot more fun.”

– O, the Oprah Magazine

“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.”
