In this novel, Vreeland tracks Auguste Renoir, 39, as he conceives, plans and paints the 1880 masterpiece for which the book is named. Tired of painting fussy society women in their parlors, Renoir decides to break out a bit and paint his real friends on a restaurant's outdoor terrace along the Seine, at a time when diverging styles were tearing apart the Impressionist group.
