I believe the answer is:

aesop

Here is my best explanation:

'storyteller' is the definition.

(Aesop is an example)

'a work about french art' is the subsidiary indication.

'work' becomes 'op' (common abbreviation for 'opus').

'about' says to put letters next to each other.

'french art' becomes 'es' (I've seen this in other clues).

'op' put after 'es' is 'esop'.

'a'+'esop'='aesop'

'producing' is the link.
