The outlandish Italian painter Guiseppe Arcimboldo dazzles Mati and Dada with his fantastic multiple image paintings. In ‘The Librarian’ he painted a person made up of books, and his painting ‘Spring’ shows a woman’s head composed of vegetables, flowers and leaves. ‘The Gardener’ when viewed in one direction is a bowl of vegetables, and when it is inverted it is a portrait of a man. Arcimboldo enjoyed confusing and amusing people.
Seven-year old Mati is a cheerful girl with a wild imagination and a zesty passion for art. Along with her eccentric sidekick Dada, she’s magically transported into the lives of the greatest artists in history.
Together, these two friends go on exciting adventures with the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. Hand in hand, they travel throughout time and art, solving mysteries and sometimes getting into trouble ~ all the while learning from the Masters themselves.
This wonderful animated series is a fun and imaginative introduction to art for budding artists everywhere!
