Inspired by Art: A Peek at Bathsheba Inspired by Art: A Peek at Bathsheba is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the most torrid love affair ever told: David’s forbidden love affair with Bathsheba and his attempt to cover it up. 

These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscripts inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the second of which is A Peek at Bathsheba, where she imagines the love affair and the ensuing scandal. Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a study course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story. 

This collection is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by the story moment-by-moment, blow-by-blow, as imagined by various artists. Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Chagall, Picasso, and Jan Steen to name but a few.
