Early Praise
“While it’s one thing to read about a stolen painting
called
The Concert
, it’s quite another to break out your
own colored pencils and recreate the power and detail of
Vermeer’s masterpiece with your own hands.”
– Lynda Albertson, CEO,Association for Research into
Crimes against Art – ARCA
