La Casati, The Selfish Muse- How do people like this fade to obscurity rather than remain forever relevant?


I gained access to an amazing Graphic Novel recently. Europe Comics and Vanna Vinci released a biography about Marchesa Casati. Casati was not a person I was familiar with before reading this work. I was mainly drawn to the artwork seen on the cover and the general premise. As the pages unfolded, I was astounded by how fascinating her story was.

This graphic novel is perfect for those as clueless as me on the subject- Marchesa Luisa Casati was an Italian heiress who squandered her fortune in a whirlwind lifetime of debauchery, extravagance, and artistry that set the stage for modern show women like Madonna and Lady Gaga. Casati was a muse for 100+ painters and artists with a desire to live opulently and without reserve. Live exotic animals, crazy technological and electrified  dresses plugged into the main power grid, expensive and vast housing.

It should be noted that this is probably not the best choice for children as it is filled with lots of nudity.

Disclosure: This Graphic Novel was supplied for review purposes by the publisher or artist. it arrived on my computer amidst a cloud of smoke and mystery. I was glad for this magical "ebook" and normal clouds of smoke indicate fire hazards of which I am nervous.
