Sara Houghteling Pictures at an Exhibition
Weaving a fictitious Jewish family into historical figures of the Paris art world of the 1930s and 1940s, Houghteling humanizes the story of the Nazis systematic looting of Frances art treasures. Daniel Berenzon, who counts Matisse and Picasso among the artists he represents, routinely grills his son, Max, on the exhibits mounted in his prestigious Paris gallery, then steers the boy toward medical school since he considers Max lacking in business sense and too attached to paintings to let them go for profit. The Berenzons flee to the South of France during the occupation of Paris, returning to find the gallery a burned-out shell and hidden masterpieces gone, and it is Maxwith the help of his fathers apprentice, Rose Clement, whom he loveswho tries desperately to recover the stolen art as he uncovers a family secret. Rose, who works heroically to track the paintings in secret from her Nazi employers, is patterned after real-life curator Rose Valland, whose documentation helped repatriate thousands of paintings. Houghtelings vivid descriptions of paintings and their power add to the allure of this impressive debut novel. --Michele Leber
