Every painting has a story –and if it could speak, what would it tell us? 


Hannah Rothschild, writer, film director and Chair of the National Gallery’s first novel. This absolutely beautiful hardback was published by Bloomsbury last year and is now available at the library.

Impishly wicked, ruthlessly frank, touchingly percipient and sometimes laugh aloud funny to boot. Hannah Rothschild captures the contradiction between art as money and art as the soul of humanity really well. – Rachel Campbell-Johnston, Art Critic for The Times

Morrab Library volunteer Pat Boddy’s thoughts –

A fascinating and wonderfully descriptive book with an intricate plot and very colourful characters. I really enjoyed it.
