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.

Very annoying narrator, weird inflections

Very annoying narrator, weird inflections on pretty much every sentence. Like she is telling a fairy tale. Author is just whinging and whinging about women in the art world, not slightly inspiring at all, you get a real sense she is very annoyed at the world. Also clearly has a massive ego, why does she keep talking about herself like that? I don't care what she is wearing, why keep describing what you used to wear and how your hair was? What point are you trying to make exactly? Also, she likes art, big deal, join the rest of the population, she thinks liking art makes her a better person somehow. Romanticising her studies.
