Professor H. Perry Chapman has just published "The Trouble with Artists" (The Art Bulletin 95, September 2013), which assesses the contribution and impact of two fundamental books about the idea and image of the artist, Die Legende vom Kunstler (1934), by Ernst Kris and Otto Kurz, and Born Under Saturn: The Character and Conduct of Artists. A Documented History from Antiquity to the French Revolution (1963), by Rudolf and Margot Wittkower. Professor Chapman, who is former editor-in-chief of The Art Bulletin, was commissioned to write this review essay as part of the journal's centennial.
