Life studies : stories by Susan Vreeland( Book )
20 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 1,324 libraries worldwide
"After writing two novels in which artists are the central heroines in their stories, Susan Vreeland has written a deeply moving, richly textured collection of stories that explore art through the eyes of ordinary people. Rather than focusing directly on great Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists, Vreeland shifts her lens to those on the periphery; their lovers, servants, children, and neighbors, showing their personal stories as they play out against the artists' lives. Counterbalancing these historical tales is an equal number of contemporary ones in which Vreeland's characters, a teacher, a construction worker, and an orphan, encounter art in meaningful, sometimes surprising ways."--Page 4 of cover
