Confessions of an Old Jewish Painter by R.B. Kitaj, with discussion leader Denise Lisiecki.
Confessions of an Old Jewish Painter comes from a previously unpublished manuscript found after American artist R.B. Kitaj's suicide in 2007. A jewel among artist autobiographies, it relates his passionate life as a seafarer and book trader, his splendid rise and bitter fall in the British art scene, and eloquently describes his vices and sufferings.
