Notes

Description
"Talented emerging fiction writers find inspiration in one of the most famous paintings in New York's Frick Collection: Ingres's Comtesse d'Haussonville (1845). Following the successful literary musings on art at the Frick, The Sleeve Should Be Illegal and Cocktails with a Curator, this anthology of newly commissioned texts from graduate students in New York University's Creative Writing Program pays homage to one of the institution's most celebrated paintings. Gathered here are fourteen fictional stories inspired by one of Jean August Dominique Ingres's most captivating portrait paintings, Comtesse d'Haussonville. A detail of the painting-the fine silk dress, the red ribbon, the shawl casually draped over the arm of the chair, the contents of the tabletop, the contemplated pose-is the starting point for each story; what follows can, but need not, directly refer to the detail chosen. The goal is a completely unique work of fiction that lends a new literary chapter to this important Frick painting. The faculty advisor for the project is the best-selling novelist Darin Strauss, who writes the book's introduction. Illustrated with Ingres's famous portrait as well as with many lush details, this one-of-a-kind volume is an ode, both traditional and postmodern, to a glorious work of art"--,Provided by publisher.
