This is a fabulous art book. If you love I Spy Books, you must have this book. It is an oversized book with pictures spanning both pages. Around the work of art are 10-12 circles the size of half dollars. These circles contain an image for the reader to find in the piece. It's easy for the oil paintings, but mosaics, Jackson Pollock's painting and Chinese symbols aren't as easy to find. I'm 26 and I couldn't put this book down, but it would also be great for kids (probably 6-7 years and up.) Great buy!

This book should be in every junior high/ middle school classroom - because it not only shows the art of the time, but integrates this with politics, fashion, life-style, religion and even the philosophy. Students ask why they need to learn about history -- this would demonstrate how humans from many cultures are connected through the ages and we all have similarities as well as differences.

The idea of lifting the flaps to learn about artists and finding small sections of each painting makes the book fun too.

As a Mother and a teacher---this is an excellent teaching tool for kids---my daughter and I cuddle in bed and do about 4 pages a night -----it's like 'I Spy' but without words she says.
Some of the paintings are a bit gruesome/freaky but if I don't react to them neither does she.
I do recommend this book.
