Yuko Otomo and Basil King compared how captured they and their respective partners — the late Steve Dalachinsky and Martha King — were by their separate visits to Delacroix’s house, garden, and studio tucked in a cul-de-sac on the Left Bank of Paris. This lovely book of poetry, art, and memory is a result.
