“A beautifully illustrated, fact-filled breath of fresh air! Countless women have been left out of art history, but thanks to gorgeous books like this, future generations will begin to know their stories.”—Danielle Krysa, founder of The Jealous Curator
Women make masterpieces! Through fifty fascinating profiles, Women in Art highlights the achievements and stories of fifty notable women in the arts—from well-known figures like painters Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keefe, to lesser-known names like nineteenth-century African American quilter Harriet Powers and Hopi-Tewa ceramic artist Nampeyo.
Covering a wide array of artistic mediums, Women in Art also contains infographics about artistic movements throughout history, statistics about women’s representation in museums, and notable works by women. This fascinating book celebrates the success of the bold female creators who inspired the world and paved the way for the next generation of artists.

“Rachel Ignotofsky’s Women in Art is that rare, perfect marriage of medium and message. Fifty true and inspiring stories of artful women, artfully told. Fun to read and to behold, this book is a delightful expression of the fact that, in Ignotofsky’s words, ‘Art is more than just something beautiful— it shapes and reflects our world.’”—Bridget Quinn, author of Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (in That Order)
