Sitting for Klimt: Five Novellas

Sitting for Klimt: Five Novellas

By Carol Bergman

From journalist and essayist Carol Bergman comes an intriguing collection of five novellas in Sitting for Klimt. Each story evokes the work of a famous artist-Gustav Klimt, Marc Chagall, John Singer Sargent, Maria Izquierdo, and a Sumerian woman working in Egypt during the reign of Akhenaten and Nefertiti more than three thousand years ago. Bergman explores the artists' models, families, and the times in which they lived. Loosely based on historical research, these stories are gems of color, light, and love. Told in a variety of literary styles from first and third person to realistic and magically real, Sitting for Klimt is an elegant portrayal of the artistic mind.
