Christoph Ossirian, the greatest painter of a generation, is dead. Carolyn Delgado, his Muse, his partner, his lover, is left to carry on without him. Brent Metierra, a reporter, is looking for answers and understanding.
From the past through the present, Brent will follow Carolyn as she leads him from the beginning of the story to the end, hoping that she can illuminate the mysterious genius behind some of the most famous works of art in the world. From the stark cityscapes of Chicago and New York to the lush jungles of Sao Paulo, Brazil, Carolyn leads Brent on a journey through the history of Ossiran and herself, and shows him the hidden cost of being both artist and muse.
