The Underpainter is a novel of interwoven lives in which
the world of art collides with the realm of human emotion. It is
the story of Austin Fraser, an American painter now in his later
years, who is haunted by memories of those whose lives most deeply
touched his own, including a young Canadian soldier and china
painter and the beautiful model who becomes Austin's mistress.
Spanning decades, the setting moves from upstate New York to the
northern shores of two Great Lakes; from France in World War One to
New York City in the '20s and '30s. Brilliantly depicting landscape
and the geography of the imagination, The Underpainter is
Jane Urquhart's most accomplished novel to date.
