ART IS LIFE Icons and Iconoclasts, Visionaries and Vigilantes, and Flashes of Hope in the Night

by | Read by Jerry Saltz, Mark Bramhall

Contemporary Culture • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic Jerry Saltz (HOW TO BE AN ARTIST) and narrator Mark Bramhall combine their considerable talents to present this eclectic collection of Saltz's writing from 1999 to 2021. From cave paintings and Renaissance masters to contemporary superstars and the marginalized misunderstood--this is an accessible exploration of the places, events, and personalities that influence the 21st-century art world. Saltz's distinct voice and unhurried pace create an intimate connection with listeners as he shares his critical observations and personal stories. Bramhall enriches the chapters he performs with an equally engaging narrative style that complements the author's tone and delivery. Overall, this is an enlightening and entertaining audio experience. Listeners should be ready to press pause and search for images of artists' works to enhance this inspiring listen.
