Une histoire qui commence au XIXe siècle, avec un ancêtre tout droit sorti d'un roman de cape et d'épée, puis le destin de Lina Wertmüller, l'enfant rebelle, s'amorce entre les deux guerres et annonce une vie d'artiste engagée, d'iconoclaste fascinante, à l'image d'une uvre déroutante In this critical biography, we discover a daredevil aerialist whose work on stage and screen has generated passionate controversies. Lina Wertmüller, the first woman to be nominated for an Oscar, is, according to Henry Miller, a better filmmaker than any male director. She speaks her mind with forthrightness, using the language of the lower classes to explore sexual politics, to praise man in disorder and to denounce threats to individual freedom. A fascinating journey with a multitalented artist who takes humanity very seriously while laughing at herself.
The Impressionists are world renowned for their vibrant depictions of the atmospheric effects and shimmering beauty of the French countryside. These paintings, often produced in Paris, found an enthusiastic market in the city. The inhabitants of that hub of modernity had an apparently paradoxical interest in the mythologies of rural living. As the city became more and more the motive force of social change so the country was understood as the anchor of changelessness and nostalgia. The essayists in this volume examine the complex relationship between country and city. Their work draws widely on the contemporary culture exploring folklore and children's literature, anarchism and urbanism, and offers significant new insights into the work of major artists and writers including Courbet, Millet, Monet, Van Gogh and Zola.
