Editorial Reviews

Review

“Tremendously entertaining and “unapologetic” in its artistic license, Oil and Marble will remind an older generation of the pleasures of Irving Stone’s art historical fiction.”
--Maxwell Carter, The New York Times

“The artistic process can be one of self-doubt, struggle, and sheer physical exertion, and Storey depicts the drama here with truth and insight. A rewarding read for art aficionados and fans of historical fiction.”—- Booklist

“Vividly evoking the turbulent world and ferociously competitive spirit of Renaissance Florence, Stephanie Storey transports the reader to one of the most creative and exciting moments in the history of that remarkable city.”—William E. Wallace, author of Michelangelo: The Artist, the Man and His Times

"With every chip of the chisel and stroke of the brush, Stephanie Storey fashions a mesmerizing tale of the envy, ambition, and artistic genius that drove an epic rivalry. Oil and Marble will make readers long for Florence and to see David in the morning light."--Elizabeth Cobbs, author of Broken Promises: A Civil War Novel, and The Hamilton Affair

"In the end this book is as much a love story as it is an historical narrative of time and place. Leonardo’s love for the muse Lisa and Michelangelo’s loving obsession to create something of great beauty from a block of imperfect stone. Stephanie Storey perfectly describes this artistic love as she paints her own masterpiece in the character of Leonardo." -- Thomas Crowe, Smoky Mountain News

"Oil and Marble is a magnificent story brimming with an all-star cast of world famous artists conducted by the talent of author Stephanie Storey... An intriguing unforgettable classic piece of historical fiction." -- Hudson Booksellers, Best of 2016

"Before I got to the bottom of the first page, I was completely engrossed in Oil and Marble. I especially liked the way Ms. Storey involved all the great names of the early 16th century in the art of politics and the politics of art. This is an eminently readable tale, with the two giants of art giving the story its heart and soul. A fabulous and fun read." --HistoricalNovelSociety.org
