Continuing the travels through the portable museum!

Author of War Songs, Grady Harp is an artist representative, gallery owner, writer of essays and articles on figurative and all Representational art for museum catalogues and for travelling exhibitions, and an Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer. 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: Fall of a Giant:

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, FALL OF A GIANT, follows her previous installment FIGHTING GOLIATH and is again one of the most complete collections of art from ancient through renaissance to contemporary is drawings, paintings, sculptures, etchings – works by Mantegna, Giorgione, Caravaggio, Gentileschi, Cagnacci, Pietro Novelli, Massimo Stanzione, Guercino, Jacob van Oost I, Tanzio da Varallo, Girolamo Forabosco, Simon Vouet, Bernardo Strozzi, Feti Domenico, Valentin De Boulogne, Claude Vignon, Johan Zoffany, Giovanni Lanfranco, Paul Cadmus, Gustave Doré, Rembrandt, Castiglione, Ghiberti, Johann Liss, Antiveduto Grammatica, Hendrick ter Brugghen, Fra Filippo Lippi, Spinelli, Manfredi, Vaccaro, Matteo Rosseli, Poussin, and Chagall.– some well known, others – discoveries. The art is arranged not by artist but instead by the blow by blow action of the story of Dave heading Goliath. 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, February 17
