A painting links a rare female artist of the Dutch Golden Age with a scion and grad student in "Mad Men" era Manhattan.  Developed, simpatico characters and finely wrought double-crossing in past and present Netherlands, Manhattan, and Sydney make this a very satisfying read. Great for summer, travel, or book groups.
