Summary

Francisco Goya (1746-1828) was recognised from a very early age as the leading artist in Spain, rising to become the official portraitist of the Spanish Court. He was famed for the quality and speed at which he executed his drawings, and his etchings are of extraordinary delicacy. His use of chiaroscuro in his dark, intense paintings influenced many artists, including Manet. This monograph presents the essential works of this pioneering artist, today considered the father of modern art.

     In Egg and Spoon, the artist and illustrator Rose Blake tells the story of a childhood fuelled on art and creativity, infused with travel and steeled by the more quotidian aspects of family life growing up with the artist Peter Blake. Surrounded by a cast of originals and eccentrics and taking in backdrops such as London, L.A. and Paris, Blake creates poetic snapshots of a family, with the joys of a life dedicated to art and the inevitable fragilities and poignancy of age and, pertinently, ill health. The effect is that of a literary photo album, with all the charm and character and emotional intensity those documents communicate.

    "...where the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average."  There's a reason all those children in Lake Wobegon are above average.  It might be the clean prairie air.  It might be the wholesome wheat that's grown by the Norwegian bachelor farmers.  And it just might be their strong, good-looking parents. 
    Garrison Keillor's collection of "News from Lake Wobegon" monologues -
     all taken from live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion is  an extended meditation on the joys, sorrows, challenges, and humor of raising children.  The tales include "Ronnie and the Winnebago" about a young man, his rock-star girlfriend, and his long struggle to earn his father's understanding; "Love While You Dare" the story of August Johnson, who, after losing his brother in a gambler's prank in Copenhagen, flees to America rather than face his mother--who later comes to visit him in Lake Wobegon; and six more splendid, unforgettable accounts of how, in Keillor's words, "the meek shall inherit the earth, and when we have done all we can with our children, it's time to step back and let them inherit it."
