"A feminist and fantastical vision of art history… [Kunz's] ideas and concepts are as bold as her brush line is graceful."
The New Yorker

 

 

"In an act of trickster feminism, Kunz re-envisions famous Western paintings… Playful and irreverent."
Publishers Weekly

 

 

"Anita Kunz, illustrator extraordinaire, has had enough of male-dominated art history that is still taught in school, despite shifts in the art landscape. Another History of Art is a compliment, of sorts, to the great historical omnibuses by Sir E. H. Gombrich and H. W. Janson."
Steve Heller - Print Magazine

“Thank you, Anita Kunz, for this work of art! I have a deep appreciation and admiration for how this book came to be: out of your searching, out of your desire to learn about and know these lives more deeply. Thank you for painting these extraordinary women, for portraying their individuality, strength, determination, courage, perseverance, and their particular beauty. I’ve spent the past twenty-three years of my career playing a kick-ass woman on TV: Kick-ass women are all around us and this book is a beautiful, unforgettable reminder. I loved spending time with this sisterhood.”
Mariska Hargitay

 

 

“Anita Kunz reminds us that women’s history is the world’s history. She reminds us that much of the culture we take for granted exists by the grace of women’s ingenuity. This is a book that demands that we continue to interrogate why women and their historical contributions are, all too often, overlooked.”
Roxane Gay, from the Foreword
