She sounds really interesting. ( )

I always struggle when trying to decide if I should finish a book that is not holding my interest; but with so many books to read, I cannot waste my time slogging through something I'm not enjoying. That's the case with this book. It's a dispassionate, clinical biography of Suzanne Valadon, who was a model for many famous painters and also a painter herself. Had it been told with some emotion, perhaps I could have carried on. I reluctantly quit at page 170, and I'm sorry now that it took me that long. ( )

In the 1880s, Suzanne Valadon was considered the Impressionists’ most beautiful model.

Born Marie-Clémentine Valadon in the heart of rural France, Suzanne was the illegitimate daughter of a linen maid. When her mother’s poverty obliged her to move to Paris, eleven-year-old Suzanne moved from one unskilled job to the next until, aged fifteen, she was offered employment in a circus. However, tragedy struck when she fell from a trapeze and suffered a devastating injury. It ended her career as an acrobat, but steered her into the profession which would define the rest of her life: painting.
The blossoming teen began working as a model in Montmartre, where her beauty quickly won her admirers. With growing confidence, she posed for – and had affairs with – some of the most renowned painters of the day, including Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec. Suzanne basked in the artists’ attention and relished her new career, until one day, Renoir caught her indulging in a passion she had been trying to conceal: she was drawing. Her secret was discovered: Renoir’s model was a talented artist... (Kustantaja)

How often do we look at an object and secretly wish it could tell us its story, Catherine Hewitt has done that. No longer is she just a dancer. ( )
