I read this without knowing anything about it other than I liked the cover art. I read the first and what turned out to be the original story translated from French and thought, good. Great art, fantastic painting-quality art and a somewhat muddled story about a biographer looking for information on an unknown artist who died in WWI. Then I got to the middle, where the first story ended and had to flip it over to read the other story, told with the same art by a different writer who had no knowledge of what the original story was about. I didn't know this until the end when I read the author's note so SPOILERS, I guess.
The concept behind the two stories is interesting and makes the work maybe more intriguing than if it didn't have this conceit. I like both stories about the same and thought they worked independently and created unintentional contrast and comparisons. Again the art is stunning. Overall not what I was expecting and I'm kind of glad I went into it blind, with no clue what was going on.
