Transnational Perspectives on Artists’ Lives: From the Nineteenth Century to the Present (PDF) shows the significance of transnationality for studying and writing the lives of artists. While musicians, painters, and writers have long been cast as symbols of their related nations, the latest research is increasingly drawing attention to those features of their lives and works that resist or challenge the national framework. The volume demonstrates different ways of treating transnationality in life writing by and about artists, investigating how the transnational can provide intriguing new insights on artists who link different nations and cultures. It further examines ways of adopting transnational perspectives in artists’ biographies in order to deal with experiences of cultural otherness or international influences and evaluates cross-cultural representations of artists in biography and bio-fiction. Collecting together insights from scholars and biographers with expertise in literature, music, and the visual arts, Transnational Perspectives on Artists’ Lives opens up rich avenues for researching transnationality in the cultural domain at large.
