The last painting of Sara de Vos by Dominic Smith

Amy The Last Painting of Sara de VosThis is a lovely novel, set in three different times and places. A Dutch woman paints in the 1600s, a young Australian woman paints a forgery of a painting owned by a wealthy New Yorker in the 1959s, and in the year 2000, the no longer young Australian is faced with the prospect of the real painting and the forgery coming together to her ruin. It is fascinating in its historical detail, and moving as we follow the characters through their lives. It’s about art, connection, love, loss and regret, and it is quite beautiful.
