Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The essays and articles on art and literature assembled here have been written over the last twenty-five years by a writer who has earned recognition as much for her academic achievements as for the accomplishments of her literary career. Anita Brookner begins with the lives and work of the three great nineteenth-century French painters Gericault, Ingres, and Delacroix, using them as the springboard for an analysis of the complex dashes between the romantic and classical movements.

In this incisive and sometimes controversial collection, Brookner also examines the loves and lives of Louise Colet and Rosa Bonheur, women who arrived at a certain greatness in the literary and art worlds but have been less remembered than they deserved.
