This children's art book presents a new way of looking at art with children.
It's an A - Z guide to thirty of the most engaging artists and one of their most famous works of art.
Designed for both adult and child to enjoy together, this art book for children encourages children to learn to look, and to imagine why artists choose to create art in the way that they do.
From Leonardo da Vinci's iconic Mona Lisa to Andy Warhol's equally iconic Marilyn and from Jeff Koons' exuberant, flower-encrusted Puppy to Grant Wood's severe American Gothic, 30 works appearing in the original Art Book have been selected for this educational children's book for their significance in art history as well as their appeal to children.
The giants of art history such as Van Gogh, Matisse, Rembrandt, Turner and Velazquez are all here, but this children's art book also offers its readers an introduction to challenging, recent artists including Cindy Sherman and Donald Judd.
This history book for children makes the broad, exciting selection of 30 key works across the history of art clear and accessible to children from age seven and upwards, but will be of interest to readers of all ages.
This art book for children is one of many children's art books available from the National Gallery.
