Historical Art

The Last Painting of Sarah de Vos by Dominic Smith, Sarah Crichton Books, $26 – out now

This book came out in hardback in April. What a great read! Fans of historical fiction will particularly like this story of a Dutch woman painter in the Golden Age of Dutch painting in the 1630’s.  The plot centers on one of her paintings and goes back and forth in time from the 1950’s to contemporary times and back to the 17th century, showing the impact of the painting on three very different characters.  Fans of Susan Vreeland will enjoy this. Well written with characters you want to cheer for!
