With her richly textured novels, Susan Vreeland has offered pioneering portraits of artists’ lives. This novel focuses on Auguste Renoir’s instantly recognizable masterpiece, which depicts a gathering of Renoir’s real friends enjoying a summer Sunday on a cafe terrace along the Seine. Narrated by Renoir and seven of the models, the novel illuminates the gusto, hedonism, and art of the era.
