This series is great. it gives great information on what else was happening in history and the artist's life at the time when the picture was painted.

i have two young boys and we have been going through these paintings - one a week - and it is amazing to see the boys appreciation for detail and time period develop so quickly. we enjoy reading about the technique and even try to mimick it in our own crude way. cool to find out the "tempra" paint is made from egg yolks. and learning about perspective of the artist. my boys have really enjoyed going through this book.. it not only has led to some interesting discussions about art history but world history as well! i highly recommend this book!

This series of books is important to give to young people as they grow. Earlier, even than you may think appropriate.

It includes a nice, simple narrative concerning the artist, the main techniques used, or something about the period in which in was painted.

very educational book. My daughter has read it several times and was able to use it for school. This series is great. it gives great information on what else was happening in history and the artist's life at the time when the picture was painted.
