Julian Barnes Reflections on Open-Eyed Painting Automatic translate
MOSCOW. Publishing house "ABC-Atticus" published a book by Julian Barnes, "Open your eyes."
The delegation of British writers who visited the 18th Non / fiction Literature Fair last year included Booker Prize winner Julian Barnes. The formal reason for the visit was the cross year of the language and literature of the two countries. Barnes’s last book at that time - “The Sound of Time” - became one of the main Non / fiction bestsellers, and the story of its creation and the main character became a topic for lively discussions. Alex Preston, a literary columnist for the influential The Guardian, called The Rush of Time a masterpiece. The fate of a genius, forced to enter into dialogue with the authorities, to compromise for the sake of being able to create and illusory guarantees of security for his loved ones, is an eternal history repeating itself in any totalitarian society. Not losing its relevance for Russia over the past 100 years.
Toward the close of the year, ABC-Atticus published a collection of essays called Keeping an Eye Open: Essays on Art. He came out in the UK in 2015, a year before the novel about Shostakovich. Paradoxical, well-об flavored ’humor reflections on artists, the evolution of painting and his own views on art. The heroes of the book are Cezanne, Mans, Freud and many others. Here is the first story he wrote about painting - about Jericho’s painting "The Raft of Medusa" with an eerie plot. Vivid, subjective, colored deeply personal reflections. Those are interesting.
