Well, I am already doing the other Art History Reading Challenge that has been going for a while. (button is on my sidebar somewhere). I thought I would give this new one, Heidenkind's Art History Reading Challenge a go too because it is themed and will challenge me more. I won't be able to get away with just fiction books - I will actually learn something!
So I went down to my local library and picked up two books to get started with. The third book I have to read for my book club as well. Then we are going on an outing together to the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum. I am not sure what other books I will pick. I figure I will see where these first three lead me. So my theme is the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
1. Eye of the Beholder: Masterpieces from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (an exhibition catalog)
2. The Art of Scandal: The Life and Times of Isabella Stewart Gardner by Douglass Shand-Tucci (biography)
3.The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft by Ulrich Boser
