More > prospect of maiming or death. To American children of the early 1940s, war was part of daily life—as it was for George Klauba. Today, as an artist, he looks back on that history.
The work featured in Nerves on Fire is not standard imagery glorifying war; instead, it presents powerful and moving artwork reflecting scenes from World War II. In eighteen startling and empathetic paintings of the Pacific War, Klauba offers glimpses into the emotions of both sides—Allied and Japanese—as he captures the pathos and brutality of war as well as its valor and heroism.
Nerves on Fire speaks to many generations, not just the ever-shrinking roster of World War II vets. Within it are lessons for all, including young people of today who live in a world beset by violence and wars around the globe.< Less

This book is about the contribution of women to the lives of famous artists.
Although women have given so much to these artists, this selfless contribution has been largely overlooked by art... More > historians. In trying to redress such a huge imbalance, I have focused mainly on male painters.
As a retired psychiatrist, I could not write about these artists, and the women who were their intimate partners, without considering their psychopathology. In writing about this I have struggled to avoid jargon and to ensure readability. The main focus is on the relationship between psychopathology and creativity, with some comments about the effects of psychiatric treatment on the creative process.
The overall bias of the book is feminist, but my voice here is not strident.
I have tried to comment sensibly on what modern women may learn from the truly heroic women who are the main focus of this work.< Less
