Publisher's Summary

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 this smart, feisty, educational, and enjoyable book.

This is art history from 1600 to the present day for the modern art lover and feminist.

Great performance & book

I'm honestly a little confused as to why some have reacted so negatively to the performance. I thought the narrator did a great job and seemed to really master the authorial voice.

Great listen, I would highly recommend.

How has this person narrated so many books?

I'm forcing myself through this because the content is good. To my ears, the performance is atrocious and I don't understand how this person has made a career in narration. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll retain as much of the information as I could and will have to end up reading a physical copy.

Love it!

Highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to read more on the subject of women in art history. I really like the writer style and that she infused some of her own experiences alongside those of the women in art. A must read.
