Inspired by Art: Fighting Goliath is a moment by moment depiction of the battle in the Valey of Ellah. Having collected these images served as inspiration for scenes in Rise to Power.
Inspired by Art: Fighting Goliath is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David.This volume focuses on the epic battle with Goliath.
These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscript illustrations inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the first of which is the novel Rise to Power, where she imagines the battle with Goliath.
Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a semester-long course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story.
The book is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by moment-by-moment in the story, blow–by-blow, as imagined by various artists: Michelangelo, Bernini, Dali, Adrea del Verrocchio, Donatello, Titian, Rembrandt, Lorenzo Ghiberti, Rubens, Degas, and Barry Moser, to name but a few.
