Must be read by all, an unbelievable work of pure joy and unbearable honesty My heart and soul and spirit go out to her in the shape of one of her favorite reclining poses the one to be compared with Michelangelo What a phenomenal thing from a heavenly creature s arms. I bought this book based on the review in The New York Review of Books, and because the images within the review intrigued me I had never heard of Charlotte Salomon before this I was blown away by her paintings and her story This is the most incredible work I ve ever seen Not to be missed. WOW A work of genius, Salomon s book is truly shocking in its intensity, its scope, its depth of rage and sorrow Think of Anne Frank as her lucky younger sister what Salomon suffered was unspeakably worse I cannot get Salomon out of my head This is as epic a tragedy as any play by
An early great graphic memoir art comics. Really beautiful work I thought the pieces re her family history of mental illness were particularly moving The pieces with the one artistbro and his artbro thoughts gets a bit tedious though.

The story was overly long and most of it didn t feel worth telling Some of the paintings had interesting layouts and colors, but most were pretty terrible I know this is a painting style but it feels incredibly amateurish. Een van de mooiste boeken die ik ooit heb gelezen Of eigenlijk is lezen niet het goede woord Er staan bijna 800 prachtige gouaches in. Fantastic and then you realize it is autobiographical Sobering Recommend.
