How much can one person experience in a lifetime not neccessarily in the negative just in general and still seem to be so unfulfilled But then again this is just a biography and I obviously never knew the real personAll in all only read this if you are reeeally interested in her or the art of the beginning of the 20th century I am interested in at least the latter; and was always slightly intrigued by the formerThe first half was especially interesting the last half was pretty tedious and it all took m
