Kirkus Reviews
"This quirky distillation of Klimt's essence is particularly notable for its luminous, gold-leafed multimedia paintings that effectively evoke the Viennese Secessionist painter's individualistic style. . . . Monaco's illustrations are so unique that libraries with strong artistic picture-book collections won't want to pass this by." Publishers Weekly
"The depiction of an artist to whom work is more important than family, wealth, or recognition, comes through with force ? and with great charm."
