WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Donald Margulies' Sight Unseen tells the story of Jonathan Waxman, artist as superstar, plunged into the exorbitant hype of the American art world. Just before his works are celebrated at an exhibition in London, he journeys to the village where his former lover, Patricia, lives with her British husband, Nick. In their cold, remote house, Jonathan discovers an early painting of Patricia he'd done when they were young lovers. The subsequent struggle for the painting embodies the unreconciled passions of the past. Patricia has never forgiven Jonathan for leaving her, Nick despises Jonathan and the kind of art he produces, and Jonathan has never been able to recapture the inspiration and purity he felt when he painted Patricia. The characters are forced to deal with the unanswerable question of anti-Semitism, the legacy of the Holocaust and assimilation, the sadness of lost love, the role of the artist and the location of the human soul at the end of a ragged century.
