Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic Sebastian Smee explores how the twin forces of friendship and rivalry shaped the careers of eight world-famous artists - and, ultimately, modern art itself. In the process, he sheds fascinating light on other creative rivalries, from Titian and Raphael to Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke, and on the process of creation itself.
