    After a visit to the Gardner Museum with the kids over Christmas break I decided to grab some books from the library to take their interest in art a step further This series is excellent It offers a timeline a short biography and several works for each author as well as an explanation of what makes each artist's work uniue There are many prompts for the child to make art in the style of the artist featured with suggestions of how to start that process Very engaging Additionally there are amazing artists that I had not heard of so it was interesting and educational for me too


  2. Jo Oehrlein Jo Oehrlein says:

    I love the timeline that goes with each artist It shows the artist's life span key events in the artist's life and in general history and shows any overlap with other artists featured in the bookThe artists are pretty unevenly spread through historyWe have Leonardo DaVinci then a big jump to Jan Vermeer then another jump to Monet Rousseau Cassatt van Gogh Matisse Klee Marc Picasso Chagall Kahlo and WarholAs you can tell it's pretty weighted on Impressionists and laterThere are several examples of most of the artists' work although the examples aren't always largeThe biographical information is good and the picture captions are interesting and informative

    Love the survey format the sidebars and the timeline that helps place each artist's life in context of world events and the other artistsThat said the book only had 2 women artists Cassatt Kahlo and leaned super heavily on white artists Would really have loved diversity


  4. Mrs. Ruigrok Mrs. Ruigrok says:

    An excellent book to teach children about artists where their art is found and what they achieved with their art Wonderful


  5. Isobel Isobel says:

    A good book to introduce children to different artists and to help the children to understand the artists styles of work in their paintings and drawings


  6. Angelika Angelika says:

    Another book I got to read at my job and it was really cool I don't really know much about art but I'm trying to learn and this book really gives you the basics

    NonfictionTwin Text Entry #3 This book was another art history selection that I had to choose because it is about newer important artists that have made an impact However the most important reason that I chose this book was because it was completely inclusive between men's contributions and women's Art is notoriously a man's world and it has taken far too long for women to get the recognition they deserve I think it is important to show in a classroom that women have made valuable contributions as well as men Also this book has a lot of lovely photos of paintings and tells a bit of a story along the way It tells the stories of the artists and also gives credit to their work The fiction I chose to pair with this is actually a wonderful spin on one of Mary Cassatt's a famous impressionist painter paintings In one of Cassatt's paintings there is a girl and a puppy which becomes the premise of the book It is set in the 1870's during the Impressionism era and other painters are cleverly woven into the story I think this is such a great spin on mixing fiction with nonfiction characters I think they pair nicely because they both discuss not as well known painters from different artistic periods The nonfiction choice discusses impressionist painters which blends nicely with the fiction book

    This was a wonerful book to introduce children to the great artists; mentioned were Leonardo da Vinci Jan Vermeer now I know why it is called Vermeer blue Monet Roussaeau Mary Cassatt Vinnie whose paintings are among the most expensive in the world; my favorite the Sunflower paintings Also included Matisse Paul Klee loved his techniie brushstroke by brushstroke Franz Marc Pablo Picasso and Marc Chagall Frida Kahlo and of course Andy Warhol The book gave great timelines and a lot of information about the artist and hisher type of art with their most famous ones shown It asked many good uestions and in general was just a great book I learned a lot from it Mona Lisa has the highway blues you can tell by the way she smiles but there is just something about the way the girl with the pearl earring looks at you that moves me Great glossary of art vocabulary included

    I enjoyed sharing this book with my daughter Many of the 13 artists mentioned we had already discussed in school and it was a nice review while a few were new and fun to be introduced to A very uick read briefly covering each of the artists with a sprinkling of interesting facts as well A time line located at the top of each page references key events in history and other notable artists during that time period


  10. Louise (A Strong Belief in Wicker) Louise (A Strong Belief in Wicker) says:

    One of a magnificent series of books aiming to teach children about art and artists They can teach adults a thing or two as well Most of these artists were predictable some I had never heard of before Rousseau Klee and Marc Well worth seeking outMy blog posthttpastrongbeliefinwickerblogspot
