Spanning 300 years of art history and weaving art styles including Cubism, Surrealism, and the Baroque into his prose, Jake Kendall tells the stories of those with an obsession for creation—artists who sacrifice friendships, careers, romance, and even their own happiness in pursuit of a vision.

How far would you go for the sake of art?

In these 8 illustrated short stories, Monet, Van Gogh, Géricault and others navigate the boundary between art and experience through masterfully written prose that reflects each artist's style. The collection culminates with "The Vanitas", where Sandro Signorelli's philosophy that a lifetime of faith and toil shall receive its just reward is challenged by the emergence of a new artist. Across town, Michelangelo Merisi is making seismic waves. The city of Rome cannot help but be captivated by this explosive eruption of talent, swagger, seduction, and violence, while Sandro's life is plunged into crisis by a rival who does not even know his name.

"Kendall's collection is a thoughtful and playful meditation on the often tyrannical pursuit of art. His artists, admirers and collectors are in turn impassioned, deluded, cruel and visionary, resulting in a rounded exploration of what it means to create."—Lynsey May, author of Week Teeth

«

"Beguiling, gripping and shrewd - this collection of original tales celebrating and evaluating the graft and passion that goes into the making of beauty is an astute, intelligent hymn to art and the struggle of artists who devote themselves to creation. Jake Kendall doesn’t flinch from the necessary examination of failure and compromise, or the price paid by those close to the artist."—Patricia Duncker, author of Hallucinating Foucault

»

«

"Kendall has a perceptive, wide-ranging and original eye, in his observations of art and those who make it."—Katherine Mezzacappa, Historical Novel Society
