"Modernism enjoyably demystified." (Kim Hubbard PEOPLE Magazine 2012-12-17)
The new book "What is Contemporary Art? A guide for Kids," from New York's Museum of Modern Art ($19.95), offers a primer, featuring over 70 artists. Although it's geared toward youngsters, adults could also learn a thing or two. Some of the themes include self-portraits, why so many works are titled "Untitled" and drips, dots and waves (think Jackson Pollock). (The Wall Street Journal 2012-11-03)
Excellent learning book for kids! And adults! The pictures were clear and the type easy for young readers. Very cool.
Must have for all parents and Art teachers!
This is a book that kids who like art and appreciate museum-going will love. It is great for parents and children to peruse together.Published on January 5, 2013 by JAYNE VERMONT
