I Know an Artist: The inspiring connections between the world's greatest artists Reviews

  • Ashley

    Beautifully illustrated book that is more diverse than most. Highly recommend for gifting or gracing a coffee table. Artist history blurbs are easily digestible and fun to read.

  • Hannah-lynette Hunter

    This is a wonderful anthology of artists throughout history. Each is represented with information about their work, complimented with a portrait. It's a must have for anyone interested in are history.

  • Tam Wallace

    Very interesting read on how history's (and those currently alive) artists are all connected in some way, either they had met or had influenced each other. I recommend to those who have an interest in artist biographies.

    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

    I Know an Artist is a collection of 84 illustrated portraits that reveal the fascinating connections between the world's most famous 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 stories 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 connections are well-known, whereas others span both time and place, linking pioneers in arts 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.

    This was a fascinating book filled with so many facts: I am a trivia lover and I learned so much. I had zero ideas that these artists were connected in the way that they are. Each artist was introduced and illustrated in their style of art and this would be a perfect gift for an art lover or an artist like me.

    However, the book was hard to really evaluate as the .pdf copy was almost impossible to read as each page took up three screens. that contained 1/3 of the page. So I am not sure how the pages look as a whole - so I knocked a star (palette?) off of my review because it was frustrating.

    As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by Millenials on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🎨🎨🎨🎨

    I am reviewing this book I Know An Artist for Susie Hodge and Quarto Publishing and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review

    A lot of artists included which I have never heard off so this was a good insight into them. Beautiful artwork and lots of useful info.

  • Emilee

    This would make the perfect coffee table book for even the most casual art lover. The short descriptions of each artist packed with information paired with delightful illustrations make this a fun stop and go read.

    My sister has an art degree and has tried to school me in art knowledge for years. I now have a bit more foundation to fit her outpouring facts upon.

    Thank you to NetGalley and White Lion Publishing for a free digital copy in exchange for my honest review.

    Over 80 artists are showcased in this informative book about artists and their connections with one another. Have you ever wondered if two artists might have known or influenced one another? This book has some of that information as well as a bit about the artists and the type of artwork they produced. There were a number of new-to-me artists from all over the world. There were artists from the past and more current ones as well. The illustrations are interesting and simply reflect the artists’ work. I did feel at times that I would have liked to have a reference nearby that had the artists true portraits or at least a few of their works of art to look at.

    Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group-While Lion for the ARC – This is my honest review.
