I Know an Artist is a collection of 84 illustrated portraits that reveal the fascinating connections between the worlds 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 art 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.
