Italian artist Andrea Mantegna gets help from Mati and Dada to trick a putto (a small, mischievous winged creature) back into his very realistic, eye-tricking work of art on the ceiling of the Camera delgi Sposi, a room in a palace. Mantegna painted figures different sizes to give his paintings perspective.
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!
