Mona Lisa in Camelot: How Jacqueline Kennedy and Da Vinci's Masterpiece Charmed and Captivated a Nation
ReadHowYouWant.com, Limited, 01/10/2010 - 448 páginas
In December 1962 Da Vinci's Mona Lisa set sail from Paris to New York for what was arguably the riskiest art exhibition ever mounted. The fragile icon traveled like a head of state, with armed guards and military surveillance, in a temperature-controlled vault. Masterminding the entire show was First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. For eighty-eight charmed days, ''Lisa Fever'' swept the nation as nearly two million Americans attended exhibits in Washington, D.C. and New York. It was the greatest outpouring of appreciation for a single work of art in American history and the beginning of our nation's love affair with the arts. Acclaimed biographer Margaret Leslie Davis ''tells the tale in charming fashion'' (USA Today), revealing a saga filled with international intrigue and the irresistible charm of Camelot and its queen.
