How many women artists can you name? From Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe, to Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and Xenobia Bailey, this lushly illustrated alphabet picture book presents both famous and underrepresented women in the fine arts from a variety of genres- painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and more. Each spread features a simple line of text encapsulating the creator’s iconic work in one word, such as ‘A is for Angels’ (Mirka Mora), ‘D is for Dots’ (Yayoi Kusama) and ‘S is for Spider’ (Louise Bourgeois), followed by slightly longer text about the artist for older readers who would like to know more. Endmatter includes photos, extended biographies and discussion questions for budding creatives and trailblazers.
