Pontiff’s portrait artist pens fairy tale

Catholic World News - December 07, 2012

Natalia Tsarkova, Pope Benedict’s official portrait artist, has written her first work: a fairy tale entitled Il mistero di un piccolo stagno [The Mystery of a Little Pond], a book inspired by the Pope’s summer residence at Castel Gandolfo.

Msgr. Georg Ganswein, who serves as Pope Benedict’s personal secretary, will join the directors of the Vatican Publishing House, the Vatican Museums, and the pontifical villas at Castel Gandolfo at a December 10 press conference devoted to the book.
