About this title:
When a disillusioned banker sees his daughter through the eyes of Renoir, his senses and zest for life are awakened. Morisot’s wet nurse sacrifices her own child so another mother can paint. By modeling nude, a wife discovers her deeper, more compassionate self. In one enlightening summer, a young girl encounters Picasso and death. Together, the stories in Life Studies are a fascinating exploration of human frailty and resilience. These tales marvel at the lasting strength and meaning of art in our lives, revealing art’s healing effect on the soul. Crafted with the skill of a master painter, Life Studies is a dazzling addition to Vreeland’s outstanding body of work.
