Sarah’s Art History Reading Challenge


  • Challenge yourself to read at least 6 books about art in 2009. These can be either fiction or nonfiction, and can span every genre from historical fiction to graphic novel.
  1. The Forest Lover, by Susan Vreeland
  2. The Madonnas of Leningrad, by Debra Dean
  3. The Matisse Stories, by A.S. Byatt
  4. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, by James Joyce
  5. Yellow House: Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Nine Turbulent Weeks in Arles, by Martin Gayford
  6. LeConte Stewart: The Spirit of Landscape, by Robert O. Davis

This Challenge is so right for me! I love reading about art and artists. It’s a second generation thing — my Dad loved it, too, and had some wonderful art books in his library. So, I’m really excited about participating in this challenge. Thanks, Sarah!

    Thanks, Lezlie, that’s what I love about these challenges. It’s so much fun to see what people are reading and then read all those reviews. Looking forward to this one!
