The Art Book for Children (HB)

The Art Book for Children (HB)


The perfect introduction to art for young readers everywhere: The Art Book for Children considers the work of 30 great artists with the clarity and innovation of the bestselling The Art Book. This collection debunks traditional classification and throwing together artists from different schools and periods, working in different techniques for a younger audience.

This book is an entertaining and engaging guide to be enjoyed by parents and children together. It encourages young readers to look closely at the work of the great artists and use their imagination: from the inimitable Leonardo da Vinci to the equally iconic Warhol, from Jeff Koons’ exhuberantly playful work to masterful minimalism of Donald Judd. These artists have been selected for their significance in art history as well as their great appeal to children. Each artist entry is accompanied by a beautiful reproduction of a single key work and a short, readable text that encourages children to look closely at the piece and personal response. The Art Book for Children encourages readers to look closely at art and consider the inspiration and reasons behind it as well as the way in which they were made.

Children easily peruse the work or study closely the greats of art history from Matisse to Rembrandt and Van Gogh to Turner and Velazquez, the work of many of the artists is also on display at the National Gallery. This book will appeal to children from the age of seven upwards, but will be of interest to readers of all ages.

“The best of these books assume that children don’t have to be tricked into liking art and don’t have to be talked down to about it. But they should also never be bored by it. A book that strikes this balance admirable is The Art Book for Children.” – Randy Kennedy, The New York Times.
