Significant Others Summary


Significant Others: Creativity and Intimate Partnership by Edited by Whitney Chadwick

Biographies of artists and writers have traditionally presented lone struggles for self-expression. Here, 13 critics and historians aim to challenge and redefine conventional presumptions in an original and revealing series of essays on artist and writer couples who shared both sexual and artistic bonds. "Significant Others" features couples whose literary and artistic renown has been compounded by the fame - or notoriety - of their relationships. The contributors explore the nature of artistic companionships; questions of identity; gender and sexuality; and social stereotypes. Many consider how women and men have been evaluated in relation to their partners in biographies, art history and literary criticism. The reader is encouraged to think anew about inspirational interaction and both women's and men's contribution to culture and their art. The partnerships featured are: Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin; Sonia and Robert Delaunay; Clara and Andre Malraux; Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant; Virginia Woolf and Vita-Sackville West; Leonora Carrington and Max Ernst; Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera; Kay Sage and Yves Tanguy; Anais Nin and Henry Miller; Lillian Hellman and Dashiell Hammett; Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg; Simone and Andre Schwarz-Bart; and Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock.
