Old in Art School
Old in Art School A Memoir of Starting Over By Painter, Nell Irvin Book - 2018

I loved this look into the process of making art and the business of the Art World from a semi-insider, semi-outsider: a decorated historian who decided, in her mid-60s, to pursue a serious art degree, eventually earning an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. The author is a sharp, engaging narrator who doesn't demand a strict plot or narrative through-line of her own experience, which I think makes the book as a whole much stronger. Highly recommended.
