Uvi has published an absorbing book series – The David Chronicles – and now is curating art collections to enhance the pleasure of her books’ stories. This volume, FALL OF A GIANT, follows her previous installment FIGHTING GOLIATH and is again one of the most complete collections of art from ancient through renaissance to contemporary is drawings, paintings, sculptures, etchings – works by Mantegna, Giorgione, Caravaggio, Gentileschi, Cagnacci, Pietro Novelli, Massimo Stanzione, Guercino, Jacob van Oost I, Tanzio da Varallo, Girolamo Forabosco, Simon Vouet, Bernardo Strozzi, Feti Domenico, Valentin De Boulogne, Claude Vignon, Johan Zoffany, Giovanni Lanfranco, Paul Cadmus, Gustave Doré, Rembrandt, Castiglione, Ghiberti, Johann Liss, Antiveduto Grammatica, Hendrick ter Brugghen, Fra Filippo Lippi, Spinelli, Manfredi, Vaccaro, Matteo Rosseli, Poussin, and Chagall.– some well known, others – discoveries. The art is arranged not by artist but instead by the blow by blow action of the story of Dave heading Goliath. It is a majestic, learned, beautifully designed book that carries a lot of instruction, entertainment, as well as visual pleasure. But then that is what Uvi is all about! Grady Harp, February 17
