Ninth Street Women: Mary Gabriel in conversation with Deborah Solomon

Acclaimed author Mary Gabriel speaks about her new book, Ninth Street Women: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler: Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art (Little, Brown), with Deborah Solomon, art critic and biographer. The book tells the story of five women artists who transformed the New York art world in the middle of the twentieth century. Gabriel’s writing brings to life their passionate struggle to challenge artistic and social traditions, and in doing so tells a crucial chapter in the history of American art.
