My favorites so far have been All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Towes and Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (in That Order).

I finished the book Charlotte by David Foenkinos this week. Charlotte Saloman was a German Jewish artist during WWII. She and her unborn child were gassed shortly after arriving at a concentration camp. It was a quick, depressing read, but introduced me to an artist I’d like to learn more about.
