A Sophisticated and Inspiring Artistic Look at Bathsheba

He describes himself as being ever on the alert for the new and promising geniuses of tomorrow. So I am deeply honored that he has posted this five-star review for my art book, Inspired by Art: A Peek at Bathsheba:

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

Uvi Poznansky dons another Technicolor coat in this latest series of books, always raising the bar for her high standard previous achievements. Originally from Israel where she studied Architecture and Town Planning then moving to the US where she studied Computer Science and became an expert in Software Engineering, Poznansky managed to combine the design elements of two studies into unique formats. And she has accomplished the same with the other side of her brain - making visual her ideas (she is an accomplished painter, drawer, and sculptor who has enjoyed exhibitions both in Israel and in California, her present base) and making words in poetry and in short stories and children's books.

Uvi has published an absorbing book series – The David Chronicles – and now is curating art collections to enhance the pleasure of her books’ stories. This volume, A PEEK AT BATHSHEBA - focusing on the most torrid love affair ever told: David’s forbidden love affair with Bathsheba and his attempt to cover it up – , follows her previous installments THE EDGE OF REVOLT, FIGHTING GOLIATH and FALL OF A GIANT and is again one of the most complete collections of art from ancient through renaissance to contemporary in drawings, paintings, sculptures, etchings – works by James Tissot, Ivan Schwebel, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Pablo Picasso, Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld, Francisco Hayez, Giovanni Bilivert, Giovanni Balducci, Raphael, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Sebastiano Ricci, Giovanni Battista Naldini, Cornelis van Haarlem, Karl Brulloff, Jan Massys, Jocopo Zucchi, Giordano, Carle-André van Loo, Jean-François de Troy, Guercino, Gistave Moreau, Paul Cézanne, Dirk, Vis, Magnus KleineTebbe, Henri Lindegaard, Rittun Thorstein, Rubens, Jan Massys, Paolo Veronese, Artemisia, Gentileschi, Jan Steen, Rembrandt, Willem Drost, Govert Flinck, Salviati, Jacob Adriaensz Backer, Ernst Fuchs, Chagall, Gustavve Adolphe Mossa, Pieter Lastman, Oskar Kokoschka, Michelangelo, Henry Fueli, Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld - some well known, others – discoveries. The art is arranged neither by artist nor by artistic style or era, but rater by the story the art tells. It is a majestic, learned, beautifully designed book that carries a lot of instruction, entertainment, as well as visual pleasure. But then that is what Uvi is all about! Grady Harp, April 17
