      I find that books on artists tend to try to focus on their techniques, use of colours or the conflicts in the art world. I generally find them to be dreary to read. Not this one. This was almost a five star except for one aspect.Based mainly in the first decade of the 2oth century, Jones is obsessed with being a great painter and a lover of Rodin. The book is a blend of the historical fact, the imagination of the author and the supernatural in portraying Gwen Jones' obsessions of love, art and, [...]

      With the internet fading in and out, I've managed to finish my review of Goldie Goldbloom's fictionalised life of the artist Gwen John! anzlitlovers/2018/03/03/g

      I tried to like this but it wasn't until the final few chapters that my interest was piqued. The dual timelines were fascinating but on the whole I found the characters unlikable.

      Gwendolyn Mary John was the sister of the painter Augustus John, and lover of Rodin. She was also a painter in her own right. And incidentally, a lover of her brother, and lover of her brother’s mistress. Such tangled webs she weaved. In 1903, Gwen set off to France on foot with Dorelia, who later betrayed her for a man, and then Augustus. This section of the book was my favourite, with descriptions of the French peasantry and countryside in the Langue D’Oc. Gwen as a character was also more [...]

      At first I felt frustration and sadness. This story of a struggling young woman artist in 1905 demimonde Paris seems headed to moral or real disaster for all its characters. Yet in years of agony there are glimpses of ecstasy.

    6. Ann Tonks says:

      I kept coming back to this book and reading another section - and another - and another - and I just couldn't engage with it. I can't put my finger on what it was about the language or the story telling but what it was, I kept being pushed back out of the story.

    7. Karen says:

      A DNF. I was hoping for the journey across France, the artists perspective on Rodin etc. After 60 pages of incestrous relationships with the brother, justified by Gwen as being her fault - I'm sorry, the feminist in me can't tolerate the "I can't help but let myself get raped" bullsh*t - I gave up.

      This is my new favourite book.
