About the book:

Published to accompany an exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, which was part of the city's 1996 Olympic Games Arts Festival, this volume brings together an assemblage of art works from around the world which represent the five interlocking passions of love, anguish, awe, triumph and joy. The book explores the power of art to evoke fundamental human emotions, by juxtaposing works by European masters with treasures from around the world - many of them seldom seen or little-known outside their country of origin. The 129 works include pieces by Rembrandt, Titian, Caravaggio, Van Gogh and Picasso, as well as a Persian manuscript illumination, spirit figures from Polynesia, Japan and Africa, a Byzantine icon, a Nigerian bronze relief, and a Greek trophy amphora showing an athlete crowned by Victory.
