Product Description

The Stories of the Mona Lisa : An Imaginary Museum Tale about the History of Modern Art
Discover the history of modern and contemporary painting through the famous Mona Lisa!

“Dad, will you tell me a story?” asks a little girl. “Sure,” artist Piotr Barsony responds. “I’ll tell you a story about a painting. And the Mona Lisa, the most beautiful painting in all the world, will be our subject.” Thus begins the fascinating history of modern painting through what many consider the most famous work in the history of art: the Mona Lisa by Léonardo De Vinci. Piotr acts as the museum guide for his young daughter throughout the book, taking us on a journey through an imaginary museum. He describes famous art movements and artists, including: impressionism, cubism, expressionism, favism, minimalism, surrealism; Monet, Manet, Cézanne, Picasso, Bacon, Pollock, and more. All of the most famous painters of the modern and contemporary art movements are explained with their own Mona Lisa portraits, in their signature styles.

Throughout the book, Piotr acts as a guide, explaining to his daughter (and the reader) each genre of paintings in a clear, simple, and entertaining way. By the end of the book, we discover that he’s actually the artist who’s been painting all those Mona Lisas—and the results are spectacular. The Stories of the Mona Lisa is the perfect book for any child who loves art, history, and a good story.
