Life Studies by Susan Vreeland

Life Studies

I had enjoyed Girl In Hyacinth Blue, Vreeland’s work of historical fiction based on the painter, Vermeer, so I was eager to read more.  Unfortunately, I did not enjoy Life Studies at all.  It’s a series of short stories featuring a glimpse into the lives of several painters, mostly French impressionists.  The stories, however, were mostly about their wives and lovers, and not very interesting at all.  I found myself skimming towards the latter part of the book, because I just wanted to move on to another, better novel.
