In this book, you'll find a yearlong cycle of weekly meditations on a life lived artistically, grounded in ancient Jewish wisdom and the wisdom of artists, composers, writers, and choreographers from the past and present. You'll explore the nature of the creative process--how it begins, what it's for, what it asks of you, how you work your way to truth and meaning, what you do when you get blocked, what you do when you're done--and encounter questions that will help you apply the meditations to your own life and work. Above all, The Artist's Torah teaches us that creativity is a natural and important part of the human spirit, a bright spark that, week after week, this book will brighten.

As the oldest of institutions, marriage seems outdated in modern times, when each individual is encouraged to break with tradition in order to fulfill him- or herself. And so artists like Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo seem to be paving the way toward a brave, new kind of marriage, where spouses would be allowedeven encouragedto fulfill different aspects of themselves in outside relationships. Shared creativity, they believed, would transcend their jealousies and compensate their sufferings: through art, they would rise above conventional marital fidelity, and prove a higher fidelity to art and to themselves. The Love Lives of the Artists tells the stories of Rainer Maria Rilke and Lou Andreas-Salom, Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keeffe, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, Diego and Frida, and Henry Miller and Anas Ninfive couples who approached their relationships with the same rebellious creativity as they practiced in their art. From their early artistic development and their first experiences in love, to their artistic marriages and their affairsand then to their fights and reconciliations, addictions, nervous breakdowns and continued creativityThe Love Lives of the Artists describes the promise and the price of freedom and creativity in love.

This book examines the first generation of artists in Britain to define themselves as history painters, attempting what then was considered to be art's most exalted category. Seizing on the new critical discourse of original genius as championed in new books such as Edward Young's Conjectures on Original Composition of 1759, they rejected tradition in favor of looking to "the god within." In reconfiguring the nature of history painting, they went on to redefine the role of the artist as well. In doing so, they heralded the beginnings of the Romantic movement.

THE ARTIST'S WIDOW opens in Mayfair gallery at the private view of the last paintings of John Crane, where we meet Lyris Crane, the artist's widow and a painter in her own right. Also present are several other key players in the drama, all of whom are drawn to Lyris for a variety of reasons and motives. There is Nathan Pursey, a boorish young conceptual artist on the make, Clovis Ingram, a bookseller who is involved with Candy, the rejected mistress of a Tory MP who has just lost his seat, and Zoe, a beautiful television film-maker. An incident on his way home proves Clovis capable of an act of cowardice that will haunt him always. Nathan sets off a train of events with a maudlin late-night phone call to Jackee, a sad white rastafarian whom he dumped a while ago. This is a story of the good, the bad and the untalented where the intricate and often funny narrative explores the nature of the artistic impulse as well as guilt and the possibility of redemption.
