Summary
"Genius, friend, rival: this is the story of four pairs of artists whose intense relationships spurred and shaped their art. Matisse and Picasso. Manet and Degas. Bacon and Freud. De Kooning and Pollock. Eight of the most significant modern artists; four pairs linked by friendship and a shared spirit of competitiveness. But in each case the relationship had a flashpoint, a damaging psychological event that seemed to mark both an end and a beginning, a break that led to audacious creative innovations. Absorbing, informed and provocative, Sebastian Smee's The Art of Rivalry takes us to heart of each of these relationships. It offers revelatory insights into the ways in which these major artists influenced and changed each other:and into their ultimate quest 'to be unique, original, inimitable; to acquire the solitude, the singularity, of greatness'."
Summary
Traces the stories of four pairs of artists whose relationships shaped and spurred their achievements and the cultural world, profiling the psychologically tense relationships of Picasso and Matisse, Manet and Degas, Pollack and de Kooning, and Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon
