Format: Paperback
Deep research can ignite deep passions as Carol Bergman's "Sitting for Klimt" impressively suggests. She has worked on this collection of five novellas for a decade, her passion regularly refuelled by the discoveries she made about the artists Chagall, Klimt, Sargent, their worlds of models and lovers, and two women coming into their own through art, Maria Izquierdo, friend of Frida Kahlo, in Mexico, and King Tut's mother, Tia, in ancient Egypt. In these fact-based fictions, Bergman, who teaches creative writing at New York University, makes the five different worlds sentiently real. I was a writing colleague in workshops with her some years ago and we discussed aspects of her Klimt story. Remarkably I have remembered her writing as persistently as anything I ever read, remembered it like a perfume so alluring and deeply complex that it stays in the memory. Now to make the acquaintance of the later novellas has been a joyful thing, for they are magic work. The tender and intimate story of Marc Chagall's romance and marriage with Bella Rosenfeld is clearly a small masterpiece, fuelled not only by Bergman's questing but also by the journal of her grandmother who, as Bella's best friend, was at the wedding in the city of Vitebsk. Chagall's love paintings, inspired by his intense, dreamlike feeling for Bella, somehow inhabit the delicate prose. And a further aid has helped Bergman's nuanced narrative - a faded newspaper clipping telling of the wedding in sufficient detail to please the Tsarina of all the Russias, for it was she who ordered reporters to attend.
