Set in Belle Époque Paris and inspired by the real-life model for Edgar Degas’s Little Dancer Aged Fourteen and a notorious criminal trial of the era, The Painted Girls is a tale of two remarkable sisters rendered vulnerable to the darker impulses of “civilized society.” Book Talk participants are encouraged to read the book before the discussion. A tour of selected works from the DMA’s collection will follow.
