With her richly textured novels Susan Vreeland has offered pioneering portraits of the artists life. Now, in a collection of profound wisdom and beauty, she explores the transcendent power of art through the eyes of ordinary people. Life Studiesbegins with historic tales that, rather than focusing directly on the great Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masters themselves, render those on the peripherytheir lovers, servants, and childrenas their personal experiences play out against those of Manet, Monet, van Gogh, and others. Vreeland then gives us contemporary stories in which her charactersa teacher, a construction worker, and an orphan for exampleencounter art in meaningful, often surprising ways. A fascinating exploration of the lasting strength of art in everyday life, Life Studiesis a dazzling addition to Vreelands outstanding body of work.

Susan Vreeland's short fiction has appeared in journal such as The Missouri Review, Confrontation, New England Review, and Alaska Quarterly Review. Her first novel, What Love Sees, was made into a CBS Sunday Night Movie. She teaches English LIterature and Art in San Diego public schools.
