Sunlight On The River

This handsome volume examines the ways painters and poets have inspired one another, using nearly 60 examples – the poem on one page, the painting opposite. In some, the painting gave birth to the poem (Anne Sexton’s The Starry Night from Van Gogh’s picture), in others the parentage was reversed (Rauschenberg’s Canto I after Dante’s Inferno). It is a simple but effective conceit.
