The innovative design of Discovering the Great Masters pairs each painting with a page of die-cut windows that help the reader focus on specific aspects of the painting. It also features captions that highlight the most important symbols.

Other works in this unique and fascinating book include Renaissance masterpieces such as Botticelli's Primavera and The Birth of Venus, Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, and Michelangelo's The Last Judgment.
