    Kindle Edition · Modigliani ePUB à modigliani mobile, Modigliani PDF/EPUBSometimes the stars method of rating books doesn't quite make sense As described by hovering the mouse they are classifications that describe various levels of 'like' Did didn't really did did a lot Sometimes that is the most important thing about a book and we'd 'like' to think that if we approved that the book must ergo be a good book Sometimes though verifiably good is valuable than liked there are gaps between good and liked Modigliani What I SeeThere is no significant light source in a Modigliani portrait There are no beams or motes of dust caught in shafts from window or lamp or the heavens this is n

    Kindle Edition · Modigliani ePUB à modigliani mobile, Modigliani PDF/EPUBThe Tragedy of ModiglianiMeryle Sechrist has proven her merits as a biographer in her books on Frank Lloyd Wright Kenneth Clark Bernard Berenson and Leonard Bernstein and she has always shown a penchant for cleansing the facade of famous people and examining their lives in context with the times in which they lived and worked In MODIGLIANI A LIFE she has written a near novel about a fascinating artist whose works are deeply admired but whose personal reputation has been to date that of a inordinately handsome alcoholic hashish addicted imbiber of absinthe womanizer whose behavior when under the influence of his drugs of choice was that of a self destructive and cruel bohemian What Secrest brings to light in this book is how Modigliani's shame at having tuberculosis for most of his life hiding that ominou

    Kindle Edition · Modigliani ePUB à modigliani mobile, Modigliani PDF/EPUBSometimes you decide to read a book just because you don't know anything about the subject That's the case with this one I had read one biography by Meryle Secrest of Richard Rodgers and I liked it But I had an interest in Rodgers to start with In Modigliani's case all I knew was that he did paintings of long necked women with almond shaped faces and my attitude was pretty much that if you've seen one of those paintings you've seen them all So when the bound galley of this book showed up I decided I'd check

    Kindle Edition · Modigliani ePUB à modigliani mobile, Modigliani PDF/EPUBI found this book very well written and the subject fascinating It was carefully researched and thoughtfully presented I came to it initially after seeing a rather bad movie on the artist which piqued my curiosity mainly because nothing and no one can make Modigliani boring I was also taken with Jeanne Hebuterne his last

    Kindle Edition · Modigliani ePUB à modigliani mobile, Modigliani PDF/EPUBWhat seemed superficial was in fact full of nuance p5Unmarried they shuttled from house to house feeling stifled unappreciated and blocked taking refuge in a kind of neurasthenia common to intelligent women who have caught a glimpse of a wider world and then been barred from entering it p39in the nineteenth century calling a woman insane was often a convenient way of getting rid of her A sense of frustration was seen as a perverse refusal to be happy arguing with a husband a sacrilege and rebelling against her natural roles as dangerous p45A group of artists had rejected the stale formulae of the academics and were dedicated to an art that would mirror the reality they saw around them p53This is what geniuses are like childish rather silly self centred and impossible to put up with p58There is considerable evidence that the experience of almost dying can have a life altering if not transfiguring effect p68I am a reflection of other people’s lives p81He trust

    Kindle Edition · Modigliani ePUB à modigliani mobile, Modigliani PDF/EPUBA good insight into Modigliani's miserable life Crummy childhood beset by Pleurisy Scarlet Fever Cholera and TB Then he lives the bohemian life in Paris finding his simple line but mostly drinking to hide his consumption TB is highly contagious and people were very paranoid about anyone with a bad cough The author has written 10 biographies so she knows what she's doing but she gives us details than you'd ever care to know Her task to debunk the many myths about Modigliani's drinking and drugs is all the difficult when there are so many friends who spread the myths She also was denied any help or documents from Modigliani's common law wife and mother of their child Jeanne Not a great book unless you're into early 20th century artists

    Kindle Edition · Modigliani ePUB à modigliani mobile, Modigliani PDF/EPUBThe whole text has no structure The author never gets around to substantiate her thesis that tuberculosis was the main factor of Modigliani‘s career She seems not know how to construct an argument and how to reconstruct historical contexts and place her hero there Her grasp of historical differences between a situation in 1870 and 1910 is very weak She‘s fond of fantasising about what „the noble genius“ might have thought and felt at any given moment in his life Timeline is repeatedly completely muddled she has no sense for socio economic structures of the art scene in Paris at all It‘s astonishing that someone that has written so many biographies is so bad at doing it like in this „masterpiece“
