Filled with stunning color reproductions, this vibrant book introduces young readers to artistic masterpieces by engaging their curiosity and sense of play.
Finding and naming colors and objects is an exciting learning activity for young children, and what better way to teach them than through art? This ingenious book employs great works of art from a variety of genres and periods to ask children engaging questions. Children are invited to play “I Spy” with colors and objects in a medieval tapestry, a Renaissance mural, an aboriginal work from Australia, and a painting by Hieronymus Bosch. In addition, each artwork is accompanied by a brief description for older readers. Filled with glorious color, this introduction to important works will set the stage for a greater appreciation of art in later years.
Doris Kutschbach, art historian, editor, and mother of two children, is the author of numerous art books for children and adults alike. Her previous books with Prestel include "The Blue Rider: The Yellow Cow Sees the World in Blue", "Tha Art Treasure Hunt", and "Living Monet: The Artist's Gardens".
