Product description

Review

"The stories depict ordinary details from distinct eras with the light touch and clarity of a real Vermeer. Vreeland's book is a work of art".

-- New York Post

From the Back Cover

A LUMINOUS TALE ABOUT ART AND HUMAN EXPERIENCE THAT IS AS BREATHTAKING AS ANY VERMEER PAINTING

A professor invites a colleague from the art department to his home to see a painting that he has kept secret for decades. The professor swears it is a Vermeer -- why has he hidden this important work for so long? The reasons unfold in a series of stories that trace ownership of the painting back to World War II and Amsterdam, and still further back to the moment of the work's inspiration. As the painting moves through each owner's hands, what was long hidden quietly surfaces, illuminating poignant moments in human lives. Vreeland's characters remind us, through their love of the mysterious painting, how beauty transforms and why we reach for it, what lasts, and what in our lives is singular and unforgettable.
