Looking at Pictures (Japanese) (PB)


In Japanese, a magnificent introduction to the history of art for young readers, Looking at Pictures is full of beautiful full-page reproductions of famous art-work, illustrations and well written text that successfully conveys the basics of appreciating and interpreting art for youngsters with ease.

Looking at Pictures invites young readers on an exciting journey of discovery through the greats of European painting from Uccello and Leonardo to Rembrandt, Constable and Picasso with added charm and interest of Charlotte Voake’s wonderful illustrations. This lively publication looks at important aspects of painting such as use of light, perspective, portraits, symbolism, materials and techniques, as well as introducing key artistic language used when studying the great works.

“A thoughtfully written and beautifully illustrated guide to paintings, their history and language, and artists' techniques. For older children...this book should greatly improve enjoyment and understanding of paintings.”--Headteacher Update (September 2009)


Joy Richardson is a teacher and author of children's books on art, science and history.
