Look closer at this painting [show Mona Lisa painting].  What do you see?  You have probably seen this painting dozens, even hundreds, of times.  But did you ever really look at it?  Did you notice the veil covering her hair?  Did you notice the lack of eyebrows?  Did you notice the background?  The roads, the bridges, the mountain?  Perhaps not.  This lovely book shows us a close up of some of the world's most famous paintings and draws our eyes to the minute details that we have probably missed.  So be prepared to Look Closer.
