I Know an Artist is a collection of 84 illustrated portraits that reveal the fascinating connections between the world’s most famous artists.

In telling the stories of these creatives lives and achievements – each extraordinary and oftentimes ground-breaking – Susie Hodge exposes the fascinating web of connections that have fostered some of the world’s art masterpieces. Some connections are well-known, whereas others span both time and place, linking pioneers in art in fascinating and unexpected ways.
