"A fine catalog that documents the artists exhibited and adds the names and biographies of many others who aren't, setting the stage for sequels."--Holland Cotter, New York Times

"It is, like the exhibition that inspired it, a motivational resource for researchers, educators, and enthusiasts of mid-twentieth century American art. It should inspire any reader to look askance at the traditional narratives of this era and encourage art historians to incorporate the women artists chronicled here in their scholarship and teaching."--Lara Kuykendall, Panorama

"Dazzling."--Margaret Graham, Brooklyn Rail

"Despite the advantages of access the internet provides, it's only in a carefully prepared catalogue like Women of Abstract Expressionism that many of us will have the opportunity to view these works in an accurate representation. A book like this helps filter out the clutter of too much information, train the eye, and expand the reader's appreciation for these works."--Matthew Snider, PopMatters

"[Women of Abstract Expressionism is a] large-scale, handsomely produced catalogue . . . its lush reproductions and persuasive histories bring these women into the ranks of their male peers."--Ann Eden Gibson, Woman's Art Journal
