Art Does art leave you cold? And is that what it's supposed to do? Or is a painting meant to move you to tears? Hemingway was reduced to tears in the midst of a drinking bout when a painting by James Thurber caught his eye. And what's bad about that? In Pictures and Tears, art historian James Elkins tells the story of paintings that have made people cry. Drawing upon anecdotes related to individual works of art, he provides a chronicle of how people have shown emotion before works of art in the past, and a meditation on the curious tearlessness with which most people approach art in the present. Deeply personal, Pictures and Tears is a history of emotion and vulnerability, and an inquiry into the nature of art. This book is a rare and invaluable treasure for people who love art. Also includes an 8-page color insert.

Ashley Walker was giving birth to her daughter when her boyfriend ran off with another woman leaving her alone and destitute with a newborn baby. Life went on but Ashley is unable to give up her hate, anger and bitterness. She is mistrustful and wary of all relationships outside of her immediate family. Five years have passed since she and her daughter Becky returned home to live with her parents, Frank and Linda Walker. The family adjusted and is living a life of quiet contentment. Their peace is shattered when Ashley is injured in an auto accident sustaining severe head injuries. The surgeons save her but she remains in a coma. As days pass and hope wanes, the family struggles with God. Frank is a strident atheist. Linda was raised a Christian but left the church to satisfy her husband’s overpowering lack of faith. Ashley was raised in a non-believing home with no knowledge of God’s saving grace. Although they are not believers their thoughts inevitably turn to God. How can God allow this to happen? If He exists at all and is truly all-powerful and loves humanity why won’t He heal Ashley? The family struggles with these questions and the unfairness of life itself. A local Christian Church reaches out to help them in their distress. Pastor Phil is challenged with the hard questions. Five-year-old Becky listens carefully to the conversation between Pastor Phil and her grandfather. She is the first to turn her heart to the Lord. The little girl develops an unshakable faith and maturity beyond her years. She becomes the rock holding a fractured family together. But what about Ashley? She lies unmoving and unresponsive in a coma and shows no signs of recovery. Is she lost to God or can the Holy Spirit of God reach her in her dark world? Although Ashley's spirit lives in a broken body she is not alone. Demonic spirits encircle her like predators. In response to Pastor Phil's prayers another spirit arrives and illuminates the darkness. Ashley's parents continue to wrestle with God while she remains unresponsive to all attempt by a skilled medical staff to bring her out of the coma. Her family is unaware her spirit is very much alive and is also wrestling with the Holy Spirit of God. Ashley no longer exist as a physical being but as a spirit. Physically she is a beautiful women. However her spirit is disfigured by sin. Spiritual manifestations of hate, anger and bitterness spoil her beauty with monstrous corruptions. While her body is losing the struggle for life, her spirit is wrestling with God. Of the two struggles, physical and spiritual; only one has eternal consequences that are just beginning to dawn on Ashley. Frank and Linda are totally unaware of Ashley's growing spiritual awareness. They are wrestling with their own unbelief. As hope for Ashley's recovery slips away so also does their faith - but not entirely. A tiny spark of faith ignites in Linda's heart. Both Frank and Linda are amazed at Becky's strength and faith throughout the terrible ordeal. Both find themselves being led by the little girl.
