Overview

A surprising discovery in the pictorial heritage of a well known Swiss businessman is where this exciting historical novel begins. An anonymous painting dating back to 1441 is an exceptional piece that shatters many artists' hypotheses about the artistic evolution leading into the Renaissance. Drop into early 15th-century Tuscany, where a teenage peasant astonishes everyone with his masterpieces—drawings solely outlined in chalk. Paolo Maseto promptly decides that he will dedicate his life to improving that about which he is passionate. Interestingly, down this path he learns of another passion: the love for the daughter of one of his family's greatest enemies, the beautiful Isabeta.Un sorprendente hallazgo en la herencia pictórica de un conocido empresario suizo es el punto de partida de esta apasionante novela histórica. Se trata de un cuadro anónimo datado en 1441 cuya excepcionalidad derrumba muchas de las hipótesis sobre la evolución artística que conduce al Renacimiento.  Inmediatamente, la acción nos sitúa en los albores del s.XV en la Toscana, donde un campesino adolescente sorprende a todo aquel que logra ver los dibujos que es capaz de esbozar con solamente una tiza. Paolo Maseto pronto decide que dedicará su vida a desarrollar esta afición que le apasiona; y curiosamente, la fuerza que alimentará esta dedicación será la otra gran pasión de su vida: el amor que siente por la hija de uno de los grandes enemigos de su familia, la bellísima Isabeta.
