Summary: "Imagine your favorite artist leading you through a museum to the very work of art they can't stop thinking about. That's the experience at the heart of It Speaks to Me. In lively and intimate interviews, some of today's most acclaimed artists share the compelling details that make an artwork memorable and meaningful to them. Together these artists bring to life a wide range of museum pieces, from celebrated masterpieces to little-known gems, or from a Rembrandt self-portrait to a social-protest drawing. In the process they remind us of why we look at art at all: to share in the spark of creativity that can jump from an artwork across countries and centuries and to experience the extraordinary sensation of being inspired. Highlights include: David Hockney on Edgar Degas, Marina Abramovic on Umberto Boccioni, Ai Weiwei on a Shang Dynasty jade, Nick Cave on Jasper Johns, Judy Chicago on Agnes Pelton, William Kentridge on Antoine Bourdelle, Luc Tuymans on Jan van Eyck, and Gillian Wearing on Rembrandt"-- Provided by publisher.

Publishers Weekly Review

Arts writer Finkel offers an idiosyncratic and entertaining tour of works that have inspired artists in this winning compilation of intimate interviews. Contemporary artists including David Hockney, John Baldessari, Judy Chicago, and Ai Weiwei provide fascinating details about what makes works of art meaningful to them and, as Finkel writes, "give us example of artists thinking out loud about how to make the most of art." Chinese artist and activist Ai describes a piece of Shang Dynasty jade and its feeling of translucency, conceptual artist Baldessari calls Rene Magritte's The Treachery of Images (This Is Not a Pipe) a "great teaching device," feminist intellectual Chicago interprets Agnes Pelton's Awakening Memory of Father as conveying the painter's personal reality, and painter Hockney reveals how Edgar Degas's The Rape of the Sabines (After Nicolas Poussin) furthered his use of shadows and figures. The second half of the book gives short biographies of all 50 contributors along with an image of their work. This thoughtful work makes artistry accessible and also serves as an educational tool for those interested in exploring art and those who create it. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
