About the Book.

From Rachel Ignotofsky, the New York Times bestselling author of Women in Science, Women in Sports, and The Wondrous Workings of Planet Earth, comes Women in Art, a thrilling collection of illustrated profiles of 50 pioneering female artists from the 11th century to today.
Celebrating the success of the bold female creators who inspired the world and paved the way for the next generation of artists, Women in Art highlights the achievements and stories of well-known figures like painters Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keefe, as well as lesser-known names like 19th-century African-American quilter Harriet Powers and Hopi-Tewa ceramic artist Nampeyo. Covering a wide array of artistic mediums, this fascinating collection also contains infographics about art tools and techniques, statistics about women’s representation in museums, and more.
