Cleaning the Mona Lisa About LeeMedia TalksContactNewsletter


When I first saw Leonardo da Vinciís Mona Lisa, I was extremely disappointed.  And it was through this disappointment that for the past decade I have been on one of the greatest art adventures of my life--uncovering many important facts--including one of the art-world's dirtiest secrets.

Now, I have partnered with an award-winning design team to turn my questions--and answers--into the newest iBook specifically designed to take advantage of the iPad's revolutionary interactivity and retina display.  Using my personal high-resolution photography of paintings from around the world, this iBook uses interactive widgets, swipes, taps, and everything else that  we could think of to get to the very heart of one of the world's most-iconic paintings--Mona Lisa.

The book released on 5/29 and quickly rose to #1 in Arts and Entertainment.  Please watch the introductory video below or visit for more information.  As for me, I'm preparing for my next iBook on the art and architecture of the Camino de Santiago by walking 1,100 miles through France and back in August.
