Original sisters Portraits of tenacity and courage

Anita Kunz, 1956-

Book - 2021

"A stunning collection of 150 portraits of groundbreaking women throughout history--many of whom are unsung or forgotten--by one of the best illustrators working today. In early March 2020, Covid19-locked down in her Toronto home-studio and longing for inspiration, artist Anita Kunz began researching women on the Internet. She wasn't sure what she was looking for, but soon found an array of astonishing people who had done amazing things--some of whom she had heard of, but most of whom ...she had not. And then she began to paint them and write down their stories--an astonishingly eclectic group, from ancient history to 2020--from Joan of Arc to Josephine Baker to Rachel Carson to Misty Copland. The result is a stunning feat of historical research and artistic achievement"--
