The Masters Reimagined Vol. 2

Speculative Twists on Classic Art

The Eyes of Mona Lisa

by Bria Burton

A short story featured in The Masters Reimagined Vol. 2

If the entries in her great-great-great-grandmother's diary are true, twenty-year-old Lanea will see the future if she gazes into the eyes of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. When a special exhibit of the famed painting arrives at the National Gallery of Art in D.C., Lanea brings her best friend along on her quest to see if the visions are true, and what they may foretell.

About The Masters Reimagined Vol. 2

In The Masters Reimagined 2, eight authors unite under the inspiration of classic works of art. Masters like Leonard da Vinci, Edvard Munch, Franz Marc, Theodore Gericault, Jacques-Louis David, George Adolphus Storey, and Michael Pacher inspired the authors in their quest to reinterpret, reinvent, and reshape selected visual arts in story form through speculative twists and turns. This is the fifth project by the Alvarium Experiment, a consortium of accomplished and award-winning authors.
