Product Description:

Leonardo da Vinci was the greatest artist of his time. Gian Giacomo de' Caprotti, called Salai, was an apprentice with a larcenous heart and an aversion to truth. The third character is a young duchess whose plain face belies her beautiful soul. Could the complex ways these three lives intertwine hold the key to a historical riddle as enigmatic as the Mona Lisa's smile - why Leonardo da Vinci devoted three years to a painting of the second wife of an unimportant merchant when all the nobles of Europe were begging for a portrait by his hand? Only a master storyteller like E.L. Konigsburg could create such an intriguing answer to the puzzle behind the most famous painting of all time. "Thoroughly entertaining and believable A unique bit of creative historical interpretations and a slice of Renaissance life." - School Library Journal, starred review.
