Part of the Little gems series
See all formats and editions

Painting brings joy in a moment of grief in this moving and ultimately uplifting story inspired by the childhood of French portrait artist Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun. Elisabeth loves to paint, just like her papa.

She spends hours making her own pictures of everything she sees – and the more colourful, the better! But when she goes away to school, she finds herself in a world of grey: grey buildings, grey uniforms, grey rooms.

She misses Papa and all the colours of home. And one winter morning, she gets some terrible news that makes her days darker than ever before.

Will Elisabeth be able to find the colour and joy in her life again? A touching tale about friendship, family and finding joy in the darkest of times.

Inspired by the childhood of French portrait artist Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun.
