This season wouldn't have been possible without the remarkable book

Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (in That Order) by Bridget Quinn. It inspired me to explore women in art history and spread that knowledge to you! Click here to check it out! (This is an affiliate link if you purchase the book).

Due to the fact that Krasner and Pollock set up a foundation in the mid 1980's, almost all of their works are under copyright. However, you can view them online! The Met and the MOMA have impressive collections with great descriptions.
