Inspired by Art: Rise to Power is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the decline of the House of Saul and David’s rise to the throne.
These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscripts inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the first of which is Rise to Power, where she imagines the decline of the House of Saul and the rise of David. Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a reserch 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, Ivan Schwebel, James Tissot, Rubens, William Blake, Gustave Doré, and Vallotton, to name but a few.
