This collection considers the ways in which the writing of art history intersects with creative writing, from the creative writing of art history to dialogues between styles of creative and art-historical writing. The topics covered include Paul Gauguin's collages of quotations, Sophie Calle's collaboration with Paul Auster, Henry James' portraiture, Bernard Berenson's fictional artist 'Amico di Sandro', Virginia Woolf's 'visual' writing, Pablo Picasso's solar mythology as re-written by Georges Bataille, and creative writing in the 'middle voice'
