    schema:description "Boston painter Claire Roth has survived financially by painting reproductions of famous artworks for a popular online retailer, so when influential gallery owner Aiden Markel arrives with a bizarre proposal, her own show if she will forge a copy of a Degas, one of the pictures stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, she says yes. When the long-missing Degas painting is delivered to her studio, she begins to suspect that the stolen masterpiece, the very one that had been hanging at the Gardner museum for one hundred years, may itself be a forgery. As she works, Claire and Aiden become lovers, but she doesn't tell him about her discovery that the stolen Degas is itself a copy. This knowledge is Claire's lifeline when the finished forgery is discovered, Aiden and then Claire are both arrested, and only she can save them. This is a novel about seeing, and not seeing, the secrets that lie beneath the canvas."@en ;
