520    A masterful new story charts the circuitous course of the 
       sole surviving work of a female Dutch painter  This is 
       what we long for: the profound pleasure of being swept 
       into vivid new worlds, worlds peopled by characters so 
       intriguing and real that we can't shake them, even long 
       after the reading's done. In his earlier, award-winning 
       novels, Dominic Smith demonstrated a gift for coaxing the 
       past to life. Now, in  The Last Painting of Sara de Vos , 
       he deftly bridges the historical and the contemporary, 
       tracking a collision course between a rare landscape by a 
       female Dutch painter of the golden age, an inheritor of 
       the work in 1950s Manhattan, and a celebrated art 
       historian who painted a forgery of it in her youth. In 
       1631, Sara de Vos is admitted as a master painter to the 
       Guild of St. Luke's in Holland, the first woman to be so 
       recognized. Three hundred years later, only one work 
       attributed to de Vos is known to remain—a haunting 
       winter scene,  At the Edge of a Wood , which hangs over 
       the bed of a wealthy descendant of the original owner. An 
       Australian grad student, Ellie Shipley, struggling to stay
       afloat in New York, agrees to paint a forgery of the 
       landscape, a decision that will haunt her. Because now, 
       half a century later, she's curating an exhibit of female 
       Dutch painters, and both versions threaten to arrive. As 
       the three threads intersect,  The Last Painting of Sara de
       Vos  mesmerizes while it grapples with the demands of the 
       artistic life, showing how the deceits of the past can 
       forge the present.  This program includes a Reading Group 
       Guide read by the author.
