CASSETT & DEGAS RELATIONSHIP REVEALED

THURSDAY, APRIL 9; 7 PM
ROBIN OLIVEIRA,
author of the bestselling novel My Name is Mary Sutter, will introduce her new historical novel, I Always Loved You, the story of the tumultuous and passionate relationship between Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas, two celebrated artists of the Impressionism movement. Oliveira brilliantly recreates the irresistible world of Belle Epoque Paris, capturing the golden age of Impressionism and peopled with many prominent figures of the movement, including Edouard Manet and Berthe Morisot (the only other prominent female artist working in Paris at that time) whose own romantic relationship is also the subject of gossip and scandal. Oliveira writes with grace and uncommon insight into the lives of artists and the passions and foibles of the human heart. VIKING
