Eunice Lipton used to be a fledging paintings historian whilst she first grew to become intrigued by means of Victorine Meurent, the nineteenth-century version who seemed in Edouard Manet's most famed work, simply to fade from background in a haze of degrading rumour. yet had this daring and lively attractiveness rather descended into prostitution, drunkenness, and early death-or did her lifestyles, hidden from heritage, take a special path altogether? Eunice Lipton's look for the reply combines the suspense of a detective tale with the revelatory energy of paintings, peeling off layers of lies to bare startling truths approximately Victorine Meurent-and approximately Lipton herself

Example text

So in Asnieres, I was preoccupied. I'd get up in the morning, do my magazine illustrations-that's how I earned money-tend my mother, put the drawing aside about noon, planning to paint in the afternoon, and we would have what I expected to be a quick lunch, which never turned out quite that way. I'd prepare something nice, we'd eat. I'd be getting ready to go back to work, and my mother would start remembering things. She'd talk about bringing me to her shop and going to the zoo together.

Nothing, they said, is worth dying for if they could kill you for being Jewish. What could we say? It almost seemed as if that's why Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were electrocuted. And what a sadness that had been, the two of them lying there, side by side in their coffins, so pale, so humiliated. So, we went to school, we studied, and we worried. Worrying was very important.

I remember afternoons at college, dragging myself home to write, the house empty, chilly; my teenage brother David still at school. , all strangers to me, beloved by her but oddly never spoken of. By the time I reached my room-a mere few steps beyond her books-my body sagged with fatigue. ''I'll just lie down for a while," I'd say to myself. I'd doze fitfully, wake with a start, sweating and anxious, filled with rage toward everybody but especially toward my mother. She didn't want me to write; she didn't want me to do anything .
