A family chronicle in two registers against the background of the art of the 20th century. The voice of the female protagonist tells of events in a context dominated by men and astonished by the sudden irruption of an exceptional, uninhibited woman, capable of radical choices both in her personal life and career as a gallerist. In contrast, with occasionally tragic variations in tone, the story told by her son is about his search for a role of his own, of the barely tolerable tension between professional and ethical duties and the irresistible call of “irregularities” and of beauty as represented by his mother and competitor. The great subjects of separation, exile and of return emerge from between the lines.
