Description

In 1906, Kathleen O?Connor left conservative Perth, where her famous father?s life had ended in tragedy. She had her sights set on a career in thrilling, bohemian Paris. More than a century later, novelist Amanda Curtin faces her own questions, of life and of art, as she embarks on a journey in Kate?s footsteps.Part biography, part travel narrative, this is the story of an artist in a foreign land who, with limited resources and despite the impacts of war and loss, worked and exhibited in Paris for over forty years. Kate?s distinctive figure paintings, portraits and still lifes, highly prized today, form an inseparable part of the telling.
