BUYER OFFERS: We are a retail store with set pricing and unfortunately we can't fulfil any requests to sell items for less than the listed price.

Set in Paris in 1880, this mock-memoir entices the reader into the world of Mary Cassatt's early impressionist paintings through her sister Lydia, who Chessman sees as the artist's most inspiring muse.

Each section of the story is told in the voice of Lydia as she poses for five of her sister's most complex paintings. Ill with Bright's disease and conscious of her impending death, Lydia contemplates her world with courage. Her need to feel that she has lived her life with passion and purpose is juxtaposed with her image in each picture as perceived by Mary. With the increasing tension between these loving sisters, between subject and viewer, Lydia asks stirring questions about love and art's capacity to remember.
