Gr 3-5-This tall search-and-find picture book gives readers a glimpse into diverse art styles, techniques, and traditions through 21 selections, from a 12th-dynasty Egyptian wall painting to a 1981 Keith Haring work. The large spreads allow close inspection, and clever investigators may discover numerous minute details. A full citation of art sources completes the book with answers to the questions that introduce each work, for example, "I spy...two elephants...and several birdcages" in the 18th-century Indian miniature, Maharaja at a Garden Concert. While some familiar names and images are present, others are not, including pieces in private collections. A global collection for teaching or pure enjoyment.-Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TXα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
