Thank you for this.
Wow. Truly extraordinary.
Thank you both. The publisher is allowing me to include a story, so watch for it in a day or two.
Dear Will, I'd like to thank you for your amazing blog (I'm your regular reader), & for this post in particular. You open to me so many interesting persons & artistic destinies. Unfortunately, I could not find anything about incredible Adelheid Duvanel in Russian, so decided to translate your post. Hope you won't mind! Thanks once again for your job!
Glad you are helping to spread the word. We have Gilbert Alter-Gilbert to thank -- I would have missed Duvanel completely without him.
Just discovered this post about Duvanel because I have a German edition of one of her books that I'm trying to sell and found out on Amazon that it's actually quite valuable. Wondering why, I looked for more information. A sad but common occurence that a poverty-stricken artist's work becomes posthumously valuable. Thinking I should donate the money receive from selling the book.
W.O.W.Thank you for this profile of Adelheid Duvanel. Such a horrible life. Like a bird in the dust on the roadside, I wish I could have picked her up and brought her some peace or comfort.
