Pageturners to Read Last Painting of Sara de Vos

last-painting

Love reading?  Each month we discover different authors, topical themes and thought-provoking reads. The group meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 5.30pm to 7 pm.  For October we are reading The Last Painting of Sara de Vos by Dominic Smith and the discussion will be held on 12th October.

A dazzling and mesmerising story that charts the 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. A literary novel of breathtaking scope, ambition and achievement.

And while on art works check out the latest episode of ABC TV’s Catalyst about the concealed gems of paintings: http://www.abc.net.au/catalyst/stories/4545615.htm
