From the Publisher:
Matt O’Brien, an assistant curator and art restorer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, has always been passionate about the Italian Renaissance. But when he discovers a long-neglected portrait of a beautiful woman among the museum’s miles of storage bins, he becomes obsessed--and not only because he suspects that the painting is by Leonardo da Vinci. Something about the mysterious woman’s exquisite face stirs his memory, and when Matt finds himself spun across the centuries into Quattrocento Italy, where he arrives perfectly attired in 15th century clothing, he appears to be free to pursue her.

A magically woven, richly detailed debut, Quattrocento tells an unforgettable tale of art, and love, and the unexpected places places where they meet.Matt O’Brien, an assistant curator and art restorer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, has always been passionate about the Italian Renaissance.

Annotation:
Matt O'Brien restores paintings, specializing in the Renaissance. When a 15th-century painting he is working on reveals the face of a beautiful woman, he begins to believe that he knows her from somewhere, and he promptly falls passionately in love with her. In a room at the museum where he works--a restored Renaissance studio--he travels back in time to the world of Anna, the woman in the painting. Unfortunately, her lover--a knight who lusts after her fortune--is also part of the scene.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Well-researched but talky forays into intellectual issues raised by art, music, and science, all wrapped around a half-baked plot and silly characters." 05/15/2002
