Description

Set amid the most turbulent social and political period of modern times, Ninth Street Women is the impassioned, wild, sometimes tragic, and always exhilarating chronicle of five women who dared to enter the male-dominated world of 20th-century abstract painting—not as muses, but as artists. From the cold-water flats where they worked, drank, fought, and loved, these pioneers busted open the door to the art world for themselves and countless others.
