Inspired by Art: The Edge of Revolt

19 March 2017

Inspired by Art: The Edge of Revolt is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the rape of his daughter Tamar by her half-brother Amnon; the assassination of Amnon at the hands of her brother Absalom; and Absalom’s revolt, trying to topple David from his throne.

These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscripts inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the second of which is A Peek at Bathsheba, where she imagines the love affair and the ensuing scandal. Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a study course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story.

This collection is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by the story moment-by-moment, blow-by-blow, as imagined by various artists. Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Chagall, Frederic Lord Leighton and Jan Steen to name but a few.
