"Lovely, Chessman beautifully captures the rich relationship between sisters."
Tracy Chevalier


ADVANCE READING COPY
LYDIA CASSATT READING THE MORNING PAPER
Takes us into the world of Mary Cassatt's early Impressionist paintings through Mary's sister Lydia, who posed for many of Mary's major paintings, and whom the author sees as Mary Cassatt's most inspiring muse. Chessman hauntingly brings to life Paris in 1880, with its thriving art work.
The novel's subtle power rises out of a sustained inquiry into art's relation to the ragged world of desire and mortality.
Ill with Bright's disease and conscious of her approaching death, Lydia contemplates her world narrowing. With the rising emotional tension between the loving sisters, between one who sees and one who is seen, Lydia asks moving questions about love and art's capacity to remember.
Chessman lluminates Cassatt's brilliant paintings and creates a compelling portrait of the brave and memorable model who inhabits them with such grace.
Lydia Cassatt Reading the Morning Paper includes five full-color plates of paintings Mary Cassatt made of her sister.
