Mysteries of the rectangle : essays on painting by Siri Hustvedt ( Book )
16 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 493 libraries worldwide
In this book, Hustvedt gives us nine essays on the significance of particular works of art, replete with original insights and a few startling discoveries. In her essay on Giorgione's The Tempest, a painting that has mystified art critics for hundreds of years, the author reinterprets the canvas as a work about art and voyeurism. While looking at The Third of May, she was astonished to discover that Goya had hidden his own self-portrait in a shadowy corner of his iconic masterwork. More than anything, the essays in this book display a true passion for art, from the still lifes of Jean-Baptiste Chardin and Giorgio Morandi to the contemporary works of Joan Mitchell and Gerhard Richter. Hustvedt captures perfectly the pleasure found in giving oneself up to the complexities and ambiguities of painting, discovering new subtleties and surprises the longer one takes the time to look.--Back cover.

"Sometime during my first week in New York City, I was standing in the tiny student room I had rented, and I turned to look at myself in the small mirror over the sink. I knew the person I was looking at was myself, and yet there was an alien quality to my reflection, an otherness that brought with it feelings of exuberance and celebration. All at once, I was looking at a stranger. In this illuminating and absorbing collection of essays, Siri Hustvedt explores many of the themes that preoccupy her novels : identity and memory, sexuality and mortality, psychology, love and the power of imagination. But here she offers her personal experience -as daughter, sister, mother, and wife, student, reader and writer -to illustrate fundamental aspects of our lives as individuals and social beings in the modern world. She draws, too, on the work of Henry James, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Charles Dickens, probing their insights into human nature. Wise, honest and luminously intelligent, this is a book that invites us to look afresh at ourselves and the universe we inhabit.
