From the Publisher

Robertson Davies engages us in the fascinating history of Francis Cornish, a wealthy and mysterious Canadian collector and patron of the arts who has just died. Beginning with the chance circumstances that lead to his parents’ marriage, and including his unorthodox artistic formation and his sexual initiation, the novel narrates the various stages of his life and recounts the development of his character. This is how we discover the source of his fortune as well as his past as a painting restorer and falsifier, talents which led him to become a part of British espionage during World War II and to participate in a plot to sell falsified artwork to Nazis. With this novel, Davies weaves an ingenious tale about the reasons, passions, and intrigue that drive the art world. Although it can be read independently, this novel is the second installment of The Cornish Trilogy.

 

Robertson Davies nos sumerge en la fascinante historia de Francis Cornish, un acaudalado y misterioso mecenas y coleccionista de arte canadiense que acaba de morir. Comenzando con las azarosas circunstancias que propician el matrimonio de sus padres, y pasando por su heterodoxa formación artística y su iniciación amorosa, la novela va recorriendo las distintas etapas de su vida y dando cuenta del desarrollo de su carácter. Es así como se descubre el origen de su fabulosa fortuna y se desvela su pasado como restaurador de pintura y falsificador, habilidades que durante la segunda guerra mundial le llevarían a formar parte del espionaje británico y a participar en una trama de venta de obras de arte falsas a los nazis. Davies crea en esta novela un ingenioso relato sobre las razones, pasiones e intrigas que mueven el mundo del arte. Aunque puede ser leída independientemente, esta novela es el segundo libro de la Trilogía de Cornish.
