Renoir's Dancer Zusammenfassung

Renoir's Dancer: The Secret Life of Suzanne Valadon Catherine Hewitt

In the 1880s, Suzanne Valadon was considered the Impressionists' most beautiful model. But behind her captivating facade lay a closely-guarded secret.
Born in poverty in rural France, as a teenager in Montmartre, Suzanne began posing for - and having affairs with - some of the age's most renowned painters. Then Renoir caught her indulging in a passion she had been trying to conceal: the model was herself a talented artist.
Some found her vibrant still lifes and frank portraits as shocking as her bohemian lifestyle. At eighteen, she gave birth to an illegitimate child, future painter Maurice Utrillo. But her friends Toulouse-Lautrec and Degas could see her skill. Rebellious and opinionated, she refused to be confined by tradition or gender, and in 1894, her work was accepted to the Salon de la Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts, an extraordinary achievement for a working-class woman with no formal art training.
Renoir's Dancer tells the remarkable tale of an ambitious, headstrong woman fighting to find a professional voice in a male-dominated world.

Renoir's Dancer Bewertungen

'A compelling book.' -- The Herald
'Complemented by colour photographs and filled with fascinating detail, the book provides a long-overdue insight into the life of an ambitious woman determined to succeed in a male-dominated world.'
