Museum Reads: An Art Themed Book Group

Curl up with this month's book selection and then join in the conversation.

October 21, 2021 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm At the Museum, or Virtually on Zoom

The Last Leonardo: The Secret Lives of the World’s Most Expensive Painting, by Ben Lewis

Welcome to Museum Reads, the Newport Art Museum’s Art-Themed book group for adults. It’s the same beloved Read/Eat/Chat book group format, with a fresh name. Join us!


The Last Leonardo tells a thrilling tale of a spellbinding icon invested with the power to make or break the reputations of scholars, billionaires, kings and sheikhs. We learn of the highly secretive art market charted across six centuries with double-crossings and disappearances, in which we’re never quite certain of what to believe. It is an adventure story about the search for lost treasure, and a quest for truth.

Book group this month will meet at the Museum, unless weather in inclement, in which case we will meet virtually on Zoom.
