Comprising a wide variety of art commentaries from a diverse array of historic writers, such as Charles Baudelaire and Marcel Proust, this book seeks to demonstrate the many ways in which works of art have impacted society overtime. From reading these historic commentaries, whether they are works of poetry or professional art critiques, we can observe how our modern culture has developed overtime with regard to how social norms, perspectives, and cultural tastes have been shaped over the years.
Each commentary has been meticulously selected, edited, translated, compiled, and paired with images of the artwork that it references, showing how artists throughout history have inspired writers to "paint with their words."
