I Know an Artist: The inspiring connections between the world's greatest artists by Susie Hodge

Discover the fascinating connections between the world's greatest artists.

I Know an Artist introduces some of the most inspirational stories of friendship, love, creativity and shared passions in the world of art. Each of the 84 illustrated profiles reveal the fascinating links between some of the best known artists. Whether through teaching, as in the case of Paul Klee and Anni Albers; a mutual muse, as seen in the flowers of Georgia O'Keeffe and Takashi Murakami; or an inspirational romantic coupling like that of Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock.

In telling the tales of these creatives lives and achievements - each extraordinary and oftentimes ground-breaking - Susie Hodge exposes the fascinating web of connections that have fostered some of the world's art masterpieces. Some are well-known, whereas others span both time and place, linking pioneers in art in fascinating and unexpected ways.

Illustrated in colourful tribute to each artists' unique style, I Know An Artist is an illuminating and celebratory account of some of the art world's most compelling visionaries. A perfect introduction for students, and a source of new and surprising stories for art lovers.
