Summary
From the early days of steamship travel, artists stifled by the culture of their homelands fled to islands, jungles, and deserts in search of new creative and emotional frontiers. Their flight inspired a unique body of work that doesn't fit squarely within the Western canon, yet may be some of the most original statements we have about the range and depth of the artistic imagination. Focusing on six principal subjects, including Walter Spies, the devastatingly handsome German painter who remade his life in Bali; Isabelle Eberhardt, a Russian-Swiss writer who roamed the Sahara dressed as an Arab man; and the American experimental filmmaker Maya Deren, James evokes these lives in portraits that bring the transcultural artist into sharp relief
