Let’s enter into this magical Gallery and start an extraordinary journey of art!
During the summer vacation, the little girl Lena goes to visit her grandpa. Grandpa loves Lena very much but sometimes disappears down a rabbit hole with each stroke of his brush. Lena has no passion towards painting, and is not interested in the painting album that Grandpa sent as well. She feels a little bored.
One night, after grandpa falls asleep, Lena falls down her own hole into a hidden world of classical paintings. Guided by the fireflies flying out of the album, she gets on a moon boat. She sails through the Starry Night created by Van Gogh, and enters a fascinate world, the magic gallery, where the paintings are brought to life.
She meets the gallery guard, and together they encounter collapsing Kandinsky, magical Monet and Da Vinci; they also help to capture an escaped ermine, play red-light-green-light with Mona Lisa… The fantastic adventure is taking place in this magic gallery!
Painting: The Enlightenment of ArtFrom the perceptive light and shadow of impressionism to the strong colors featured in modernism; from unlimited inspirations of surrealism to endless imagination trigged by abstract paintings……
