LOS MISTERIOS DEL RECTÁNGULO

 

In this interesting collection of essays, the novelist Siri Hustvedt takes readers on a journey through selected masterpieces of painting in order to reveal their secrets: Giorgione's The Tempest, Vermeer's Woman with a Pearl Necklace, Goya's Executions, the still lifes of Morandi and Chardin...

Hustvedt, a writer endowed with tremendous sensibility, uses that material as a springboard for reinterpreting the works' meanings while also reflecting on different aspects of life. Her writings, based on the pleasure of art, offer readers a surprising new approach to the pictorial classics.

American author Siri Hustvedt (b. 1955), married to fellow writer Paul Auster, is one of the most remarkable figures in contemporary literature. In addition to fiction, she writes essays in which her intelligence and curiosity are applied to a wide variety of subjects, from art, philosophy and literature to psychology and neuroscience.
