  • About the Edition

    A profound pleasure of being swept into vivid new worlds, worlds peopled by characters so intriguing and real that we can"t shake them, even long after the reading"s done. Dominic Smith deftly bridges the historical and the contemporary, tracking a collision course between a rare landscape by a female Dutch painter of the golden age, an inheritor of the work in 1950s Manhattan, and a celebrated art historian who painted a forgery of it in her youth. In 1631, Sara de Vos is admitted as a master painter to the Guild of St. Luke"s in Holland, the first woman to be so recognized. Three hundred years later, only one work attributed to de Vos is known to remain-- a haunting winter scene: At the Edge of a Wood. An Australian grad student, Ellie Shipley, agrees to paint a forgery, a decision that will haunt her. Because now, half a century later, she"s curating an exhibit of female Dutch painters, and both versions threaten to arrive.

    Smith tells us he imagined Sara de Vos as an amalgamation of a few Dutch women artists from the s including: Judith Leyster, chief among them, as she was the first woman admitted to the governing, highly influential Guild of St. Luke and for years her work had been attributed to her husband, Frans Hals; and Sarah van Baalbergen, whose art did not endure.
