Art That Inspires Artists Book: Like Being Taken on A One-on-One Museum Tour by Your Favorite Artists
We've been reading how much people miss going to museums to see art. We miss it too. Perhaps, this book will help during the time of COVID-19 because it's like having your favorite artist take you on a one-on-one, special, museum tour to their favorite works of art.
This book is called, "It Speaks to Me: Art That Inspires Artists". In it, 50 contemporary artists discuss artworks that inspire them from museums around the world. It includes: David Hockney on Edgar Degas, Shirin Neshat on Alice Neel, Marina Abramovic on Umberto Boccioni, Ai Weiwei on a Shang Dynasty jade, Nick Cave on Jasper Johns, Judy Chicago on Agnes Pelton, Luc Tuymans on van Eyck, and Gillian Wearing on Rembrandt to name a few.
