For readers of Girl with a Pearl Earring, a beautiful, brilliant, delicious (Elizabeth McCracken) novel about Edouard Manets muse. Paris, 1862. A young girl in a threadbare dress and green boots, hungry for experience, meets the mysterious and wealthy artist douard Manet. The encounter will change herand the art worldforever. At seventeen, Victorine Meurent abandons her old life to become immersed in the Parisian society of dance halls and cafs, meeting writers and artists like Baudelaire and Alfred Stevens. As Manets model, Victorine explores a world of new possibilities and stirs the artist to push the boundaries of painting in his infamous portrait Olympia, which scandalizes even the most cosmopolitan city. Manet becomes himself because of Victorine. But who does she become, that figure on the divan? Intense, erotic, and beautifully wrought, Paris Red evokes the unconventional love story of a painter and his muse that changed the history of art.
