Any number of artists have produced evocative work, paintings that could trigger a literary response. But none came to mind who could equal Hopper in turning out canvas after canvas. If no single artist could take Hoppers place, how about a full palette of them? Suppose each author was invited to select a painting from the whole panoply of visual artFrom the cave drawings at Lascaux to a contemporary abstract canvas on which the paint has barely dried.
Pairs full-color reproductions of famous paintings with the stories they inspired, and includes contributions from Joyce Carol Oates, Lee Child, Sarah Weinman, Michael Connelly, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and Jeffery Deaver.
