Life Studies

Author: Susan Vreeland
Stars: 5

Destination: England, France, Italy

These are stories about the people that surround artists - their children, servants, lovers.  In one, Modigliani's daughter seeks some sign of her parents.  In another, Manet's wife finds herself and her own power in the paintings of Manet's models. A banker disillusioned with his life, sees his daughter through Renior's eyes. In all, the stories reflect the strength and role of art in our lives.
