Synopsis: When two paintings hanging across from each other in a museum fall in love, a resourceful art student finds a way to unite the lovers.

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-5-Stanley's imaginative tale, brought to life by Nolan's realistic illustrations, unfolds in a spacious, unnamed museum among a collection of paintings that appear to be by 17th-century Dutch masters. At night, portraits in the styles of Rembrandt, Hals, and others converse and gossip over the romantic feelings of the aristocratic gentleman in one canvas, whose gaze falls steadily on the painting of a kitchen maid across the room. During the day, all is quiet while visitors roam the hall and art students, like the young red-haired woman named Rusty, copy the famous paintings. Rusty notices on a return visit that the gentleman has lost his merry look, and that the kitchen maid has been removed to another gallery. Her solution is ingenious. She copies the maid on the same canvas as the gentleman and, back home on her own apartment walls, the two are forever bound in the same frame, locked in a mutual gaze of affection. This lighthearted story is deftly told and handsomely illustrated. More believable in its fantasy than the elaborate Rembrandt's Beret (Tambourine, 1991) by Johnny Alcorn, it serves the same purpose of adding a dimension of familiarity and human interest to the sometimes intimidating atmosphere of a great art museum.
