Each piece in this socially conscious collection of poetry describes a painting or a sculpture: some, a re-vision of a classic; others, an original work not yet realized.

Among the artists whose work is re-imagined are Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Dali, Botticelli, Monet, and Rodin.

"It has been a long time since I've read a poetry book, but when I came across Paintings and Sculptures by Chris Wind, I was hooked. You know that feeling—when you read the first page and you know you're going to like the book? That happened when I read the first poem. ... I loved "Mona" and I could picture the scene; it might have happened that way, we'll never know. Also, "The Last Supper" was brilliantly clever. But my favourite one was "Lady of Justice"—such a fine poem, with a subtle message ... This is for sure a book I'll reread every couple months!" Mesca Elin 5/5
