Love relationships between artists raise poignant questions about the connection between intimacy and creativity. By examining couples from the world of visual arts in the 19th and 20th centuries, we see the compatibility and/or disharmony of artist relationships and creative expressions. Using slides to stimulate discussion, the lives, works, and artistic significance of couples are revealed. Artists include Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and Canadians Mary Pratt and Christopher Pratt.
