A collection of short stories explores art through the eyes of everyday contemporary people or the lovers, servants, children, and neighbors who surrounded great Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masters, in a volume that includes the stories of a disillusioned banker whose understanding of his daughter is furthered by Renoir, a wife's journey of self-discovery as a nude model, and more.

It takes you to the private life of artists, their family, friends, environment. The stories raise your curiosity to find and look at the paintings mentioned in the book. If you love impressonists you may like the first half of the book. Well written with facts and imagination.
