[book is nice and clean, with no significant wear; jacket shows wear and various tiny nicks along top and bottom edges, light rubbing overall]. (line drawings) Termed "an extravaganza" by its author, this is a partly-fictional, partly-factual story based on incidents in the lives of Isabella Stewart Gardner and artist John Singer Sargent, "whose intimacy lasted from the day he first painted her portrait in 1888 until she died in 1924."
