Book Description:
One of Honore de Balzac s most celebrated tales, The Unknown Masterpiece is the story of a painter who, depending on one s perspective, is either an abject failure or a transcendental genius or both. The story, which has served as an inspiration to artists as various as Cezanne, Henry James, Picasso, and New Wave director Jacques Rivette, is, in critic Dore Ashton s words, a fable of modern art. Published here in a new translation by poet Richard Howard, The Unknown Masterpiece appears, as Balzac intended, with Gambara, a grotesque and tragic novella about a musician undone by his dreams. 'The greatest novelist of the nineteenth century and perhaps of all time.' The New York Times
