Biography of a double
Biography of a double covers over 80 years of a life of adventure in the art world and on every continent. John Skolle uses his double - Jan - to tell his own story, which begins in a circus in Bohemia and continues in New York where he landed in 1923 after playing his future a coin ...
The biography offers many stories, often danger prints, lived in Leipzig, New York, the French Riviera, Paris, throughout Africa and Central America. This story is also often referred to famous artists he had known personally.
In 1954, John Skolle was the first American ever to cross the Sahara from north to south with a Tuareg caravan. A 625-mile trek through an absolute desert. The account of the experience, both erudite and adventurous, is like an hallucination. Azalaï can still be found on the internet and in American libraries 50 years after its publication.
