Robert O. Caulfield has been painting for almost 75 years, but it wasn't until 20 years ago that the colors on his canvas finally began to brighten up - and for good reason. He and his brother were raised by his grandmother, who used to lock them in the attic with a candy bar for dinner while she left to get drunk. As a child of the Great Depression, Mr. Caulfield routinely had to stand in bread lines. I hated every humiliating second of standing in those lines of the down and out," he writes in a new book, "Ruggles Street: The Life of an American Artist. I knew those people in their shabby clothes were the dregs, the poorest of the poor, and that I was one of them.

I bought this and "The Art of Robert O Caufield", at about the same time and enjoyed reading his life and viewing his paintings as I did so. Being an Artist myself I study various other Artists and their work. I was able to relate to a lot of Mr. Caufield's life

The author is either a great artist or a super hero. I shared those streets and have a
vivid memory of many of the characters. The author does each of them justice, but may have exaggerated his experiences a "tad." Literary license is a wonderful thing !

I loved to read this book. It is a good example on how a positive attitude and a good marriage can In some cases be fruitfull. In this case it is.
Like I said the storry is wonderfull. The quality of the artwork on the other hand is not high. I think it is quit fantastic how well they do by running the atelie and selling the paintings. It shows how far stiking together and working direcly towards one goal can get you.

As inspiring and enchanting as Caulfield's paintings! Great read and thoroughly entertaining. The story of his passion for art takes the reader on a journey of love you don't want to end!
