Luncheon of the Boating Party: Susan Vreeland

This book is like a brain spa -- edifying but relaxing. It's a fictionalized account of Auguste Renoir painting his famous group portrait/landscape/still life, "Luncheon of the Boating Party", in 1881. Plenty of historical detail, art history theory, and interesting development of characters. This author also wrote The Passion of Artemesia, which was made into a film a decade or so ago.
