because he’s proud to protect such beautiful works of art. His friends think
hemust be lonely, but he has the company of all the subjects in the paintings.
One in particular, the lovely Ms. Wren in Auguste Wrenoir’s
The Loge
, is
his favorite. One night on his birthday he has a feeling things aren’t as they
should be. That’s when he makes a startling discovery that begins a night
