2010 Art History Reading Challenge

I was hoping I'd see a challenge like this one this year. I read my first real Art Historical Fiction this year, and I really liked it. I'm wanting to read more in 2010.
Do you love art? Do you love reading about art? Join The Art History Reading Challenge and challenge yourself to read at least 3 books about art in 2010. These books can be either fiction or nonfiction, and they can span every genre from historical fiction to graphic novel. Young adult and children's books count too. The challenge will last from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010.

How much art needs to be in a book to qualify? Use your best judgment! I've read books I thought would be about art, and they weren't. I've read books I had no idea were about art, but they were. Relax, have fun and enjoy reading!

You can make your list in advance if you'd like, or you can read according to your whims. You may overlap your selections with those for other challenges.
I'm signing up for the Curious level--at least 3 books about art, either fiction or non-fiction. No list yet--I'll have to take a look around to see what catches my interest. :) I'll keep track on this post and update it as I go along. Links go to my review.
  1. The Creation of Eve by Lynn Cullen - historical fiction novel about Renaissance artist Sofonisba Anguissola.
