This revelatory collection of ekphrastic poetry was inspired by the paintings of forty-seven women artists working over five centuries and born in twenty-five different countries. Some were well known within their circles and times; others worked in relative obscurity. The youngest died at twenty-six, the oldest at 101; some are painting at this very moment. " Chroma] draws us backward in time, but also inwards: into the mind of a modern viewer, into the lives of women painters across the centuries, and into their paintings, which are not only creations, but characters, catalysts, windows, worlds." (Libby Maxey, editor and poet, author of Kairos, winner of the 2018 New Women's Voices Contest, Finishing Line Press)
