Product description

Content

Personal Feeling Is the Main Thing sees the acclaimed British artist Chantal Joffe setting out on a journey with art historian Dorothy Price in the footsteps of the pioneering German painter Paula ModersohnBecker (1876 – 1907), the first female artist to paint a naked selfportrait. Returning to London, Joffe undertakes new paintings of her friends, the novelist and writer Olivia Laing and art historian Gemma Blackshaw, heavily pregnant.

Richly illustrated with works from throughout Joffe’s career –  depicting her daughter Esme, friends, artists and writers – alongside works by ModersohnBecker and Polaroids by Joffe of the artist’s home in Worpswede, this book offers a rare window into Joffe’s practice through the prism of ModersohnBecker, working a century earlier.

Revealing texts by Dorothy Price, Gemma Blackshaw and Olivia Laing further illuminate the integrity, as well as the psychological and emotional force Joffe brings to figurative painting. 

Author

Written by Chantal Joffe, with Olivia Laing, Dorothy Price and Gemma Blackshaw

Press

‘Though separated in time and place, ModersohnBecker’s intensity of vision still speaks directly to Chantal Joffe; both artists are invested in an unflinching approach to their subject matter. They are at once fierce and tender in their acuity.’ – Dorothy Price
