Colours of Siena


‘Colours of Siena’ is the compelling tale of Clara, forced from her home in Tuscany’s art capital, Siena, and her determination to return there to paint. When the most expensive painting in Christendom is paraded through the streets of Siena, Clara, young servant to the city’s most powerful family, is inspired. Ambrogio, the youngest painter, spots her genius for colour, and ignites her passion to become an artist. But when her father is murdered, she’s banished to the country. Can Clara persuade Ambrogio to rescue her? Will family and the Black Death stop Clara realising her dreams?
