Have you ever read a book that paints such a picture that you are actually there with the main character. I just finished such a book in which the narrator recounts his early life in a turbulent pre WWII era and onward. Jimmy Ernst the son of the famous Surrealist, Max Ernst portrays a life filled with artists in Cologne, Paris and New York. All the art greats move in and out of the scenes. Artists’ lives were messy and sometimes messier regarding their wives and children. Join the Journey with me, Kate Hendrickson at artistvenu. Oh, the book if you want to know. A NOT-SO-STILL LIFE.
