Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3 Up--Koja and Miksovsky begin with Monet's early years in Le Havre and move through his life and art in straightforward, chronological order. Drawings, paintings, and photographs enliven the text. Kutschbach's focus is on a group of artists who only came together for a short time, although their influence has lasted much longer. Here, the layout bounces and swirls on the page, with the text changing color, direction, and style. This sometimes makes the narrative difficult to follow. While Klee and Kandinsky are well known artists in this group, the book also brings in the women who were part of the movement. It is a wonderful group to explore. Children should relish learning about artists who freed color and form from reality to intensify its expressive power. One unifying feature of both books is the excellent color reproductions of the artwork. These books are very different, but both will be welcome additions to art collections.

Format: Hardcover
I believe everyone should enjoy this wonderful book , full of wonderful illustrations and details about the beautiful art of impressionism. Few words can describe the artistry and talent of this book, and I believe it should be a classic experienced and read by all.
