The Art History Reading Challenge

Since I just finished one reading challenge and am about to wrap up another, I guess this is as good a time as any to announce my plans to join 2009's Art History Reading Challenge hosted by Sarah G. You can read about all the sign-up details here, but the basic idea is to read and post about six art-related books (fiction or non-fiction) during the course of the year. Drawing upon my extensive Etch A Sketch and Paint-by-Numbers background as a child, I've selected the following works (all non-fiction except for one novel*) as my projected titles for the challenge.
  • Christopher De Hamel, A History of Illuminated Manuscripts
  • Jerrilyn Dodds (ed.), Al-Andalus: The Art of Islamic Spain
  • Georges Duby, Le temps des cathedrales: l'art et la societé, 980-1420
  • Sabine Rewald et al., Glitter and Doom: German Portraits from the 1920s
  • José Carlos Somoza, Clara y la penumbra* [published in the US as The Art of Murder]
  • Giorgio Vasari, The Lives of the Artists
  • (Just added) Nicola Denzey, The Bone Gatherers: The Lost Worlds of Early Christian Women (review)
Charlemagne and Roland
