I'm an art teacher and I love this series! It has great pictures and great little blurbs about the artist or artwork. I use them to make warm ups for the kids. If you're looking for something that goes in depth on stuff this isn't for you, but if you want a short refresher or just like brief and interesting descriptions then it's great.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. R. Trtek on April 16, 2013
Format: Paperback
In theory, this has the makings of a nice "quick intro" approach to modern artists, defining Modern, I suppose, as the Impressionists and after. There's a one page synopsis of each artist's life and contribution, usually followed by a two page spread of his or her work. Unfortunately, the visual component fails to support the text in many cases -- for instance, a particular painting or two will be cited as landmarks in an artist's career, but other minor works are actually shown instead. One might quibble with some of the more contemporary choices for the 50, but that of course is just personal taste and bias. Anyway, if you want to introduce yourself to modern art in an afternoon, this is one possible place to start, despite the fact that in many cases the artists are represented by lesser works.

I bought this book for my granddaughter who is 9 now to start her learning more about modern art in general. It is a fine book, and she will learn a lot from it. The company that sent it described it well, and it came on time. You should use their company.
