In this intriguing book, young readers are introduced to the unsolved mysteries behind some of the world's greatest art and artists.

For as long as people have been viewing the masterpieces in this book, they've been asking the same questions. Why is the Mona Lisa smiling? Who was that girl with the pearl earring? What made Magritte's reading woman so frightened? These and other great mysteries of the art world are explored in this colorful, fun, and informative children's book.

Each masterpiece is presented in a double-page spread with stunning reproductions, biographical information about the artist, historical context, and the pressing questions themselves.
