Moving to another apartment can be very tiresome; but Dada uses his magic to help the great Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani move his studio and household. He describes the simple lines in his portrait ‘Madam Pompadour’ as being similar to primitive African mask sculptures. He also tells Mati and Dada why he painted simple backgrounds for his portraits and how he traded portraits for food.
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!
