8 Famous Authors Who Painted

8 Famous Authors Who Painted: Did you know some of the 20th century's finest writers were also painters? It is not unusual for writing and art to go hand-in-hand, but these authors are primarily known for their skills with a pen, or typewriter, rather than a paint brush. The abstract art movement was clearly influential on many of these writers whose work emerged from numerous counter-cultures and the turmoil of two world wars. Several of these writers produced thousands of paintings in their lifetime, while other dabbled in watercolor and oil between books. Could they have carved out careers as artists? You decide.

It is, of course, a matter of taste, but I responded more to Herman Hesse's work than to the others.
