We’ve created a mini-museum of our favorite paintings inspired by books. Did we miss a good one? Tell us about it in the comments!
We love it when artists look to books for their inspiration.
It’s a poignant experience – looking at paintings inspired by books, seeing how an artist pulls the images off the page and places them on the canvas. We’ve gathered work by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Sir John Everett Millais, and more!
“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
