About this item

Ida John, the wife of artist Augustus John, was a Bohemian who gave up a promising artistic career to marry. She had five pregnancies in just six years, had to live with Augustus and his mistress, and died in childbirth at 30. The recent publication of her letters is the first time her voice will have been heard. Ida's story of unconventional love is equaled by two other Bohemian women of the era: Picasso's first love, Fernande Olivier, prominent in the Paris art scene, and writer Sophie Brzeska, who lived with Modernist artist Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, 10 years her junior, and who died in WWI. Follow the achievements and sacrifices of the three women and how their lives overlapped. All three had a strong influence on their more famous partners, and all challenged the accepted model of marital relations of the time.
