Unfortunately the plot can be slow moving and the reader may find herself skimming to get to the next bit of action.
Vreeland's "Luncheon of the Boating Party" brings to life the story behind one of Renoir's most famous paintings as well as the story of painting itself.

Excellent! You will look at a painting differently after reading this book. Susan Vreeland's research is phenomenal, as always. Come to know the people of the "boating party"!Published 1 month ago by Sandra Gale
Excellent novel even if you are not an art lover. If you like Art then this will be an interesting read about the artist and possible how the painting came to life.Published 1 month ago by UK gal in Florida
