The twentieth-century marks one hundred years of strife and political unrest, wars and struggles for individual freedoms. Nowhere is this better illustrated and documented than in the arts. Writing, music and the visual arts have made their mark throughout history. In the twentieth-century, one sees so many styles of expression, that it is almost impossible to categorize and document it all. Artists have sought to represent and to de-represent the world as they saw it. Artists have sought to challenge all the confines of visual expression. Artists have indeed brought their blatant comments on society and all its woes to the forefront. The Creative Spirit: Stories of 20th Century Artists is a collection of short stories based on the life of twenty artists who made their contributions to the visual statement of the twentieth-century. These stories seek to open up minds to understand and appreciate what the creative mind expresses
