The author has chosen, from thousands of great works of art, fifty paintings behind whose canvas lurk the most compelling stories. He describes how many of the word's incomparable masterpieces figured in revolutions, scandals, ransoms, thefts, shipwrecks and much more. The real life cast (beside the artists themselves) includes kings, queens, wealthy patrons, spies, maruaders, Nazis, art sleuths and even the mentally deranged. 'Cloaks, Daggers and Da Vincis' is unique in the way it frames great masterpieces with true stories as compelling, thrilling, poignant and inspiring as the paintings themselves. Surviving revolutions, ransoms and shipwrecks, many of our most treasured works of art have passed through the hands of a cast of colourful characters, all of whom will keep readers riveted while enlightening them about famous masterpieces from around the world.
