Book Review: The Pen and the Brush By Anka Muhlstein

The Pen and the Brush
By Anka Muhlstein
Translated by Adriana Hunter

We were provided a copy of The Pen and the Brush in order to review it.

Wow! This book is a wonderful blend of art and literary appreciation. Often, I felt like I was in way over my head, but it was exciting and invigorating.

I have always enjoyed history, literature, and art, and this book is a perfect blend of all three. The focus of the book is how art inspired literature, but we also learn how literature inspired art, too.

There are some very funny moments in this educational book, as well as information that I never knew about a well-known American inventor. Maybe I’m the only person on the planet that didn’t know this about him, but just in case I’m not, I won’t spoil the surprise for you.

This book is inspiring and has made me want to explore art even further. It has also been the cause of a big increase in my to-be-read stack.

The Pen and the Brush was better than any art or literature appreciation class that I have ever had. If you love art and history, you will not be disappointed or bored with this book. Quite the opposite; you will be enlivened!
