    [synopsis] => A riveting history and maritime adventure story about priceless masterpieces originally destined for Catherine the Great.

In October 1771, a merchant ship out of Amsterdam, the Vrouw Maria, crashed off the stormy Finnish coast, taking her wondrous cargo to the depths of the Baltic Sea. The vessel was delivering a dozen Dutch masterpiece paintings to Europe's most voracious collector: Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia. Among the lost treasures was The Nursery, an oak-paneled triptych by Leiden fine painter Gerrit Dou, Rembrandt's most brilliant student and Holland's first international superstar artist. Dou's triptych was long the most beloved and most coveted painting of the Dutch Golden Age, and its loss in the shipwreck was mourned throughout the art world.

The Vrouw Maria, meanwhile, became a maritime legend, confounding would-be salvagers for more than two hundred years. In July 1999, a daring Finnish wreck hunter found Vrouw Maria, upright on the sea floor and perfectly preserved. The Tsarina and the Lost Treasure masterfully recounts the fascinating tale of Vrouw Maria-her loss and discovery-weaving together the rise and fall of the artist whose priceless masterpiece was the jewel of the wreckage.

Gerald Easter and Mara Vorhees bring to vivid life the personalities that drove (and still drive) Russian high politics, her art and her culture. And in the spirit of Gary Kinder and Robert Kurson, they show how these personalities instersect with the danger and adventure out on the beguiling Archipelago Sea.
