The Lover’s Portrait added to Stedelijk Museum and Jewish Historical Museum libraries

In August 2016, The Lover’s Portrait: An Art Mystery was added to the library collections of two incredible cultural institutions: the Stedelijk Museum and Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam.

The Stedelijk Museum, one of the world’s most renown contemporary art museums, decided to include my novel in their collection thanks to my descriptions of the processes involved in the restitution of Nazi-looted artwork.

A few weeks later, I received word that the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam was so pleased with their prominent role in The Lover’s Portrait they added it to their permanent literature collection.

Wonderful, humbling news!

Next time you’re in Amsterdam, check out these incredible institutions and pop into their libraries to peruse through my book!
