Wow! This book is so much more than I expected. I love learning the stories behind such wonderful works – not only of art (which I expected) but of music, literature, and film!
I’ll admit, I didn’t read this book in any particular order. When I first received it (and realized it contained more than paintings) I instantly flipped to page 263 and became absorbed in chapter 55 because it covers one of my favorite films of all time—Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life! What a wonderful artistic vision!
For those who enjoy art, film music, and literature, there are so many treasures showcased in this thick book. I love the history, beauty, magic, and nostalgia this book evokes. It’s a keeper for me but would also make a wonderful gift for an art lover or historian. It’s a great coffee table book and conversation piece. I LOVE it!
