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

"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

"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

"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

"Inspiring, charming, and eye-opening." --The Millions
