Felix Nussbaum, murdered Jewish artist by Nazis. Masquerade, 1939


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    So much destroyed by hatred of the Jewish race… And even now, Europe’s unrecognizable in anti Israeli sentiment. One reason I moved to the USA. Fed up with one sided error against Jews. So much talent lost in Ww2 and many other times throughout history.

      D’ou viens-tu, de la France? My French is no longer any good. (lived in Normandy for a year). Germany has been supportive of the state of Israel but of course have blood on their hands. Antisemitism is consistent in France, rife in Russia, and risen in Scandinavia, which had not been like that before. In the name of political correctness because it’s politically correct to blowup Israelis.

        Couldn’t agree more. My family are Mizrahi originally from Egypt then moved to France. There’s more Jews leaving France than ever before, it’s very sad, especially as so many feel the Israeli state are terrorists. Wish they’d bone up on their accurate history. Normandy? Beautiful, beautiful. Lovely part. America with her flaws is extremely kind to Jews.

        One of my best friends is Sephardi. (I converted to Judaism orthodox. Father’s lineage part Jewish). I chose Normandy through idiocy thinking romantically of Madame Bovary. I forgot that Emma hated it and wanted to go to Paris! It was beautiful but the Normans are a bit cheerless.

      • thefeatheredsleep says:

        Madam Bovary probably top twenty favorite book along with Cheri and the Last of Cheri, Sunlight on Cold Water, Sentimental Education, Flowers of Evil, oh the list goes on… You make me want a second life just to reread those gems!

      • thefeatheredsleep says:

        I’m no Paris fan. Preferred England to France overall. So you converted? That’s so great. Bet it’s an interesting story. Orthodox? Admire that. I’d make a poor Orthodox but admire greatly anyone who converts. Just read superb book about Orthodox artists struggle, funny synchrony.

      • kinneret says:

        Orthodoxy doesn’t go so well with art. (certainly not the theater, my original background). Thus another reason for pen name.

        After reading the book I mentioned earlier I can dully understand that. It is a healthy outlet.
