Luncheon of the Boating Party
by Susan Vreeland




Overview -
From the bestelling author of GIRL IN HYACINTH BLUE, A vivid exploration of one of the most beloved Renoir paintings in the world, done with a flourish worthy of Renoir himself (USA Today)

With her richly textured novels, Susan Vreeland has offered pioneering portraits of artists' lives. As she did in Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Vreeland focuses on a single painting, Auguste Renoir's instantly recognizable masterpiece, which depicts a gathering of Renoir's real friends enjoying a summer Sunday on a caf terrace along the Seine. Narrated by Renoir and seven of the models, the novel illuminates the gusto, hedonism, and art of the era. With a gorgeous palette of vibrant, captivating characters, Vreeland paints their lives, loves, losses, and triumphs so vividly that the painting literally comes alive (The Boston Globe).
