Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5 Up–An introduction to the works collected in the National Gallery of Art. More than 50 great artists are highlighted, from the 13th to the 21st centuries. The artists and their works and techniques are helpfully arranged stylistically in categories that include “Studying Nature,” “Observing Everyday Life,” “Exploring Places,” and “Telling Stories.” Through graceful, illuminating prose, readers learn how some of the most masterful artists (mostly European and American) the world has ever known created their art and developed their styles; some minorities and women are included. For each master, full-color reproductions of representative works are presented, along with enlightening quotes; occasionally, details of the artworks get lost in the gutters. For each artist, an “Explore More” feature invites readers to make their own art by replicating the masters' techniques and/or to engage in a variety of meaningful creative thinking and writing activities. This fine resource allows readers to develop an understanding and appreciation of fine art. It should have broad appeal for general audiences.–Carol Goldman, Queens Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

This handsome volume presents notable artists through beautifully reproduced artworks, mainly European and American paintings but also sculptures, collages, and photomontages. Drawn chiefly from the collections of the National Gallery of Art, in Washington, the works are by both famous and relatively unknown artists. Each article opens with a full-page reproduction of an artwork or, more often, an enlarged detail from it, followed by several pages of small-print text and small reproductions of that work, other works by the artist, and related images, such as archival photos. The final page of the article sometimes includes detailed comments on a particular piece by the artist or a contemporary, or it might suggest a related creative activity. The content of each article is drawn from a regular feature of the museum’s “family quarterly” publication, Inside Scoop. There is no index, but an appended time line of artists includes page numbers. Intelligent, well researched, and clearly written, the commentary is intended for teens or adults working with children. A pleasure for art-minded browsers. Grades 8-12. --Carolyn Phelan

What a great book for a creative type personality. Lots of tidbits about some of the most famous artists, along with pictures of their art - nice change from your typical historical non fiction!

Format: Paperback
This was a fun look into 50 of the world's most well-known artists from numerous times and genera's. Each section has background information on the artist, an easy to follow set of instructions on how to create your own version of the covered art and critical thinking questions about the work; encouraging viewers to delve deeper into what the artist was trying to convey or express the emotions the piece generates.
