Who was the arresting, enigmatic woman in
Edvard Munch's famous 1903 lithograph?
Lady with a Brooch begins with this simple question, and from there the mysteries multiply.
‘‘Lady with a Brooch is a biography and a detective story—with a very satisfying ending. As a Munch scholar, there is so much here that I did not know!"
Magne Bruteig, Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings, Munch Museum, Oslo, and author of Munch: Drawings (Marot)
‘‘It’s been a long time since I was as sorry to come to the end of a book as I was with Rima Shore’s utterly captivating biography. . . . This work contains enough intense drama to fuel an opera or a movie. Shore’s readers are in for a big treat."
Stephen R. Lehmann, co-author of Rudolph Serkin: A Life (Oxford University Press)
‘‘A fascinating biography - elegantly told. . . .Eva Mudocci and Bella Edwards were at the crossroads of early 20-century music and art."
