This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Inspired by Art: Fall of a Giant is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the aftermath of the victory over Goliath.
These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscript illustrations inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the first of which is the novel Rise to Power, where she imagines this victory.
Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a study course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story.
This collection is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by moment-by-moment in the story, blow--by-blow, as imagined by various artists: Ghiberti, Guercino, Caravaggio, Filippo Lippi, Gustave Doré, Rembrandt, and Chagall, to name but a few.
