Ninth Street Women: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler: Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art by Mary Gabriel
Set amid the most turbulent social and political period of modern times, Ninth Street Women is the exhilarating true story of five women who dared to enter the male-dominated world of twentieth-century abstract painting. From their cold-water lofts, where they worked, drank, fought, and loved, these pioneers burst open the door to the art world for themselves and countless others to come.
