A very insightful and moving story about the artist Jan Sirks. It provides clear insights into the personal life of the artist and provides an interesting perspective about the battles of modern artists in the beginning of the 20th century.
The book is hard to put down, it is a page-turner and it is hard not to fall in love with the main character and his colourful muse.
I highly recommend it.

Intriguing real life story and narrative of a known living artist of his time. Great presentation of the personal life of a family of the time and with enough suspense and concern of the trials and challenges of the times... to keep me ready for more.
Putting Art, Artists, Wars, Economics and life challenges into a very good read!
