The artist's mother : the greatest painters pay tribute to the women who rocked their cradles by Judith Thurman( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of reproductions of paintings and drawings of the mothers of thirty-three notable artists, this book offers a quick overview of art history and a brief survey of women's lives from Albrecht Dürer's mother in 1490 to Andy Warhol's mother in 1974. A combination of art history and social history, the book's basic format is simple and effective -- a brief essay about the artist and the artist's mother on the left side, the picture of her on the right. Regardless of style or medium, the artists all approached their mothers with an unsentimental, unsparing eye. Relationships between them jump off the page. The images are boldly executed in a wide variety of styles. Many of the male all-stars -- Rembrandt, Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Picasso are represented; they are joined by female artists such as Anguissola, Cassatt, and Kahlo

Secrets of the flesh : a life of Colette by Judith Thurman( Recording )

A scandalously talented stage performer, a practiced seductress of both men and women, and the flamboyant author of some of the greatest works of twentieth-century literature, Colette was our first true superstar. Now, in Judith Thurman's Secrets of the Flesh, Colette at last has a biography worthy of her dazzling reputation.Having spent her childhood in the shadow of an overpowering mother, Colette escaped at age twenty into a turbulent marriage with the sexy, unscrupulous Willy--a literary charlatan who took credit for her bestselling Claudine novels. Weary of Willy's sexual domination, Colette pursued an extremely public lesbian love affair with a niece of Napoleon's. At forty, she gave birth to a daughter who bored her, at forty-seven she seduced her teenage stepson, and in her seventies she flirted with the Nazi occupiers of Paris, even though her beloved third husband, a Jew, had been arrested by the Gestapo. And all the while, this incomparable woman poured forth a torrent of masterpieces, including Gigi, Sido, Cheri, and Break of Day. Judith Thurman, author of the National Book Award-winning biography of Isak Dinesen, portrays Colette as a thoroughly modern woman: frank in her desires, fierce in her passions, forever reinventing herself. Rich with delicious gossip and intimate revelations, shimmering with grace and intelligence, Secrets of the Flesh is one of the great biographies of our time
