About the Book

What does happiness look like? For over 2,000 years philosophers have searched for it, scientists have studied it - and great artists have captured it in paint. Drawing upon his groundbreaking work in the psychology of happiness and mindfulness, Christophe André shares 25 paintings by a wide range of masters, including Van Gogh, Vermeer and Chagall, and invites us to consider how they capture the many colors of happiness in their art, alongside its inseparable shadow, sadness. This beautiful book explains how to look at a painting and let the picture speak and live within us. In this way, each painting holds a life-changing lesson, helping us to feel, meditate and reflect - and discover the meaning of happiness for ourselves.
