I've heard a theory to the effect that you can pick any two people on earth, and forge a connection between them involving no more than eight other people. In other words, starting at one end of the chain, there is some person you know or know of, who could lead you to a second person they know or know of, who in turn could lead you to a third, and eventually, you would reach the target individual. The trick, of course, is to find the right eight people!
Helen Copley's book tells the story of the connections she forged, over about a dozen years, following her first exposure to a Christy image. The beginning is (and apparently was, for her also) slow and somewhat painful. But after hitting the real start of the quest, on p. 22, one is quickly swept into the details of the hunt -- the places she travelled to find Christy's paintings, his relatives, those people still alive who knew him personally. The cast includes many well-known characters, both in the public and illustration history worlds, and their depictions often seem like much of Christy's own work, generous and ebullient. Over and over again, Ms. Copley found the right connections -- just the right "eight people" to advance her quest.Read more ›
