Robert J. BegiebingE-book: $9.99
The ‘recovered’ memoir is fascinating . . . Allegra describes her transformation from ‘mere traveling face maker’ to sophisticated associate of Margaret Fuller and John Ruskin. She travels to Florence in the 1840s, where she contemplates her complicated relationship to the world as a young widowed female painter and engages in discussions about the nature of art . . . Allegra’s insightful ruminations on the artistic life make up the lively heart of this book.
