    Description

    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.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Unbelievably Trying

    Maybe it was supposed to have been written in a conversational manner, but, a conversation with who? The information I got was not really worth the aggravation of being talked down to for 5 1/2 hours. The author repeatedly made broad claims and then went on to immediately totally undermine her own points.
    The narrator only managed to exacerbate the imbecility. I would take an airline magazine over this audiobook if I had to choose between the two.

    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.

    Exciting!

    As a female and a painter, I appreciated Quinn's personal discovery approach to material. The style made me want to learn more about each and every artist, and her personal reflections simply tied it all together. It was not irritating in the slightest. Not all discussions of art are stuffy or objective.

    Engaging and authrtic

    Not the usual stuffy art history book, a wonderful, informative, and personal story is being told. A more truthful look at art history by looking at the often overlooked women artists and discussing their lives, works, and impact.

    full of inspiration with feeling

    amazing resource for those wanting a better look at influential women artists and their lives. I loved this book, and was surprised at how many of these women I had never heard of. being an artist with a bfa I was surprised how little I knew of the lives of even the artists who I recognized. great book

    Irritating

    The writer makes some good points but focuses way to much on her own story.. Long paragraphs about how cool she was in combat boots and a nose ring as a young historian were not important or interesting. I wanted to know more about the artists not her. I couldn’t care less about her story and how she discovered Ruth Asawa at the De Young. Her continual swearing in an attempt to seem bad ass just made my eyes roll. Meh at best.

    Conversational style and informative work on women artists

    Bridget’s conversational style made for a pleasant listen. The accompanying PDF was essential to me and could have included more (like the photographs of the artists described in the book). I learned much more about some artists with whom I was somewhat familiar. Additionally, there were some I had not yet encountered even as a fine art major. The stories are inspiring especially how so many of the women made art through difficult and dire circumstances. Their passion for their art is the most inspiring aspect of the book.

    Art at a time without museums

    What a fabulous journey of great art at a time when we cannot visit museums in person.
