The Art Book for Children Volume 2 (HB)

(0)Review Product

The perfect introduction to art for young readers everywhere: the second volume of The Art Book for Children brings to light another great 30 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.

The second volume is an engaging and entertaining guide to another 30 artists with key examples of their work: from Raphael and Gainsborough to Winslow Homer and Gerhard Richter, many of whose works can be seen at the National Gallery. These artists have been selected for their significance in art history as well as their great appeal to children.

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 can peruse masterpieces such as the Limbourg Brothers’ illuminated manuscripts and the dazzling details of David Hockney’s paintings. Every aspect of the works here is discussed in a relatable and accessible style, encouraging children to learn further and inspiring them to create for themselves. As with the first volume, this book will appeal to children from the age of seven upwards, but will be of interest to readers of all ages.
