    Finding art that is "inspired by" certain writers?

    Heya folks,

    First off, this site is great. I've been looking around and it's really exciting to see so much discussion of art in one place.

    I need some help, though, so hopefully you can assist me. I am interested in finding art that was "inspired by" certain writers. For example, I really want to look at art that was supposedly inspired by Plato (especially "Symposium"), by Xenophon (same), Foucault (any), and Derrida (many). Do you guys know how I can find this sort of information? I have been coming up with dead-ends, as I'm very new to finding art information on the Internet. I usually go to a library near here, but really I don't even know where to start.

    Thanks so much in advance!

    the first thing that came to mind is the fresco wall-painting "school of athens". although it is not actually about a piece of writing, it does depict plato, artistotle and others.
