Art Does art leave you cold? And is that what it's supposed to do? Or is a painting meant to move you to tears? Hemingway was reduced to tears in the midst of a drinking bout when a painting by James Thurber caught his eye. And what's bad about that? In Pictures and Tears, art historian James Elkins tells the story of paintings that have made people cry. Drawing upon anecdotes related to individual works of art, he provides a chronicle of how people have shown emotion before works of art in the past, and a meditation on the curious tearlessness with which most people approach art in the present. Deeply personal, Pictures and Tears is a history of emotion and vulnerability, and an inquiry into the nature of art. This book is a rare and invaluable treasure for people who love art. Also includes an 8-page color insert.

"Those who do not learn from the lessons of history are condemned to repeat them.” George Santayana's law of repetitive consequences is applicable not only in the context of history, but also in people's lives. It is the underlying theme of the novel Of Tapestry, Time and Tears. Of Tapestry, Time and Tears is an epic story of a woman's journey of painful self-discovery and her participation in the historical events of the twentieth century—the Depression, World War II, India's Partition, and ultimately, 9/11. Edwina Kleberg is defined by her German and Irish immigrant parents and her life in the Texas Hill Country during the Depression and pre-war years of the 1930's. As a female writer in the predominately male world of journalism, she is a unique observer to the myriad of hateful global changes through her work as a war correspondent in Italy, but meets an Indian soldier who not only saves her life at the battle of Monte Cassino, but piques her interest about India's impending break from British rule. Her ultimate assignment takes her to 1946 India. Against the dramatic backdrop of India's Independence and the violent cruelties of Partition, Edwina commits a series of poor choices, including a tragically poignant romance, all of which transforms her from a naïve egotistical young writer into a mature woman committed to saving the orphans of Delhi. Upon her return to Texas, she is faced with personal demons of loneliness, purposelessness, and alcoholism which miraculously results in her greatest blessing—just as Baba, her beloved sadhu predicted. Each of the characters woven through the story mirrors the complexities of life and how we are permanently affected by the historical era into which we are born. From Rajil Chaudhary, an emotionally tortured man trapped between the modern world of the west and the rigidity of India's culture, Baba, the colorful sadhu, who guides Edwina through her problems with his rich metaphorical lessons, Nikolai Petrov, the Russian journalist who surreptitiously struggles against the Cold War, Gordon Winchcomb, the hard-edged entrepreneur who secretly believes in the noble magic of Don Quixote to Carl T. Bunch, the Texas rancher hiding a painful secret behind his wild, alcohol-fueled antics—all of the characters are fresh, psychologically complex, and symbolic of life's difficult choices.

Tre, a young man whose past should have made him a monster, makes the decision not to take "No" for an answer in life. Instead of allowing his past to dictate his future, he sets out to fulfill the destiny he knows to be his, despite any obstacles, persons, or circumstances that may have come his way. Determined and loyal, Tre is driven with the desire to make a life for him and the woman of his dreams. Nia, a beautiful young woman full of hope and strength, is determined to turn her life into something that matters in order to make her mother proud. Although raised in a church, she constantly struggles with her faith and beliefs, until she meets the man of her dreams. Their life together thrusts her into obstacles that appear almost impossible to comprehend.
