Nieves Books is publishing a small volume by leading contemporary painter Elizabeth Peyton entitled The Age of Innocence from the early 20th century novel of the same name by Edith Wharton. It describes the claustrophobic, repressed, hypocritical atmosphere of New York society in the 1870′s. In the novel passion is shown as the force that would make that highly ritualized world implode.
