HASH(0x9475b09c) out of 5 stars Thoroughly Researched 28 Jan. 2015
By Rakesh Gupta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This biography is a product both of Gluck and the author's efforts. Both seem to impress the world of their talent. Both successful. The book on relatively forgotten artist is thorough in research and divided into three parts dictated by Gluck carrier graph or life's journey. It is a book on protest against suffocation in England of the first half of the 20th century: lesbianism. The artists' painted flowers, portraits and landscapes are products of the mutual influence that lovers have on each other's complimentary professions. In case of width and intensity of such experience the sections dealing with Nests-Gluck relationship is significant. Also the suffocation of the family is brought out by descriptions of family businesses and Gluck's relationship with her lineage, brother, father and most significantly her mother. Dressed as a man, practising lesbianism, Gluck is portrayed here as strong and weak. Credibly and incredible and a painter and an agitation it's for rights kind of painter's material in England of her times. This is love's journey making the book very lengthy in style. If the author had resorted to foot notes and reduced her quotes, the book would be more of a gem, even if it shines as it is.
