I’m so excited to let you know about a book that I had the great fortune to illustrate has been released today! It’s called Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (In That Order). It’s a wonderful informative book about 15 female artists you should know (and might not). Here’s a little interview I did about the illustrations in Huffington Post last week! I’ve got a handful of signed copies in my Etsy Shop.
Here’s a little slideshow of the portraits I made for the book!
And a bit more about the book from the publisher, Chronicle Books:
“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 text that’s smart, feisty, educational, and an enjoyable read. Replete with beautiful reproductions of the artists’ works and contemporary portraits of each artist by renowned illustrator Lisa Congdon, this is art history from 1600 to the present day for the modern art lover, reader, and feminist.”
