Marie Bashkirtseff (1860 -1884) was a Ukrainian diarist, painter and sculptor. She studied painting in France at the Académie Julian and would go on to produce a remarkable body of work in her short lifetime, the most famous being the portrait of Paris slum children titled The Meeting and In the Studio, a portrait of her fellow artists at work. A large number of Bashkirtseff's works were destroyed by the Nazis during World War II. From the age of 13, she began keeping a journal, and it is for this she is most famous. Her personal account of the struggles of women artists is documented in her published journals but it is a revealing story of the bourgeoisie. Dying of tuberculosis at the age of 23, Bashkirtseff lived just long enough to become an intellectual powerhouse of Paris in the 1880s. Half white cloth, papered boards, stamped in gilt. Rubbed, spine darkened. Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 61776
