Clara Drischoll is not here to receive her proper praise, so Susan Vreeland decided to write a novel imagining her life. I presume it is tough to write a biography about someone who people didn’t know was important until sixty years after their death. Clara and Mr. Tiffany is set in New York City in the 1890’s. Clara is a strong-willed woman fighting to keep her passion alive in the male-dominated art world. Whether you’re artistic or not, you will enjoy this historical fiction. I cannot help but wonder what other men in history were the face of a woman’s artistic design.
