Challenge: Art History

Here's a challenge that is pretty hard to resist. It's being hosted by Sarah. The full rules and other participants can be found here.

I have committed to reading 6 books about art in 2009. Fortunately, we can read fiction, which is the option I'm going for. Here's my list, but I reserve the right to change it if I find something else!

Tracy Chevalier: The Lady and the Unicorn
R. Howard Bloch: Needle in the Right Hand of God
Elizabeth Peters: Silhouette in Scarlet
Elizabeth Peters: Trojan Gold
Susan Vreeland: Girl in Hyacinth Blue
Karen Essex: Leonardo's Swans

I'm listening to Susan Vreeland's Passion of Artemisia on audiobook right now - so good. I also have Leonardo's Swans sitting on my to-read stack- I may have to join this one.

Great choices - I really enjoyed The Lady and the Unicorn, and I hope you do too! Happy reading!

Is it an art history and time travel challenge?!? You wrote that you were reading them in 2006!

Sorry, I couldn't resist :)

Have fun with the challenge. I have to sit down and make my plans for the new year.
