“This is our first fine art book in years. Brilliantly and astutely written, and gorgeously designed, it explores the explosive, passionate, and creative consequences that follow when love and art collide. We’re absolutely thrilled to be publishing “Artists In Love” and bet your Valentine will be equally so, anticipating his or her copy on the book’s release this Fall.” – Lena Tabori, Publisher, Welcome Books

The first major visual book to look at this subject in such epic scope, Artists in Love is a romantic, revealing and riveting exploration of what compelled these dynamic artists to partner, how their pairing influenced their work, and why their love endured or floundered.

“This book offers an engaging way to interact with the bizarre constellation of 20th century art history. It shows a different level of conversation lovers can have with one another and the world—through their art.” – “Artists In Love” author, Veronica Kavass

Included among the 30 couples profiled are Barbara Hepworth & Ben Nicholson, Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera, Lee Miller & Man Ray, Robert & Sonia Delaunay, Gilbert & George, Alfred Stieglitz & Georgia O’Keefe and Jasper Johns & Robert Rauschenberg.
