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. Now, as she did in Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Vreeland once again 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 café 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).

About the Author:

Susan Vreeland is the internationally renowned bestselling author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue, The Passion of Artemisia, The Forest Lover, and a collection of stories, Life Studies. Her novels have been translated into twenty-five languages.

From AudioFile:

In the style of her earlier work, GIRL IN HYACINTH BLUE, Vreeland revisits the art world--this time the world of the Impressionists, specifically Pierre-Auguste Renoir. This fictionalized account of one of his most famous works is clever and multifaceted. Karen Whites performance is eloquent and sweetly enthusiastic. She pays special attention to the French pronunciations, which are murmured gracefully and without pretension. The narrative has slower moments wherein it seems Vreeland tries too hard to instruct rather than artfully illustrate; regardless, Karen Whites reading is pleasant, and the descriptions are vivid and sparkling. This audiobook makes for good entertainment, transporting the listener to France and teaching a little art history at the same time.
