"The Painted Kiss is richly atmospheric and haunting."
——Lauren Belfer, author of City of Light
"In Elizabeth Hickey's compelling novel of tempestuous lives amid the tawdry bohemia of artists' studios and the glittering innuendo of Viennese café society, longing pulses from the page. The Painted Kiss is vivid, atmospheric, engaging, and very, very real."
——Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue
