Significant Others : Creativity and Intimate Partnership

Author(s): Whitney Chadwick; Isabelle de Courtivron

memoir | theory & criticism

Biographies of artists and writers have traditionally presented an individual's lone struggle for self-expression. In this book, critics and historians challenge these assumptions in a series of essays that focus on artist and writer couples who have shared sexual and artistic bonds. Featuring duos such as Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, and Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, this book combines biography with evaluation of each partner's work in the context of the relationship.
