This picture was taken in Amsterdam in 2008.

Whitney Chadwick is an American art historian and author. Isabelle de Courtivron is Professor of French Studies and Head of the Foreign Languages and Literatures department at MIT.

Significant Others was first published in 1993.

"Traditional biographies and monographs have typically described creativity as an extraordinary (usually male) individual’s solitary struggle for artistic self-expression. We decided instead, to explore the complexities of partnerships and collaborations, painful as well as enriching. We chose to focus on couples (whether different or same sex) because couples are endlessly fascinating in the diversity of their interactions."
