Childrens Book of ArtK at art as an international exchange of ideas not a straight history of western art The book includes art from all countries from aboriginal art to totem poles Children's Book of Art presents an introduction to art featuring artists art pieces and techniues Young and old readers alike are taken on a tour of art world starting with some early cave paintings followed by the old masters and finally on to modern pieces I loved this book The format is similar in format and style to Children's Book of Music my review except with art instead of music Both books are eually entertaining This book is divided into 3 sections Early Art Modern Art and Sculpture It has large photographs and easy to read descriptive text I loved that the featured paintings were explained and labelled There are lots of little sidebars directing the reader to try something they've just read about For example Vincent van Gogh painted himself than 30 times That page tells the reader to try a portrait of your own There are so many wonderful things in this book that at times I had a hard time getting through it I kept getting inspired by the pieces or techniues I wanted to try everything There are four types of pages in the book that take the readers through the art world These pages are Artist or Sculptor profile How did they do that Gallery Art Style Each artist or sculptor profile featured a timeline of their life as well as a list of artistic influences Some of the artists were well known to me like da Vinci Matisse and Picasso I liked reading the information and seeing their work There were other artists that were lesser known but eually interesting These included Austrian born abstract artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser page 100 101 Nope I didn't make that name up and Damien Hirst page 132 133 The pages 108 109 featuring China's terracotta warriors were amazing The pages titled How did they do that were my favourites They contained lots of information about techniues and materials used by the artists For instance six hundred years ago artists had to mix up their own colours It was interesting to see how they did it and where the colours came from page 28 29 The most expensive colour Ultramarine Other pages included instructions on how to use oil paints and water colours as well as how to sculpt marble and much much The instructions were rudimentary of course but they still gave me an idea of what's involved in the art I also loved the pages on making mosaics and land art page 128 129 which was awe inspiring The gallery pages showed works of art with common themes I found these very interesting and loved the subject matters presented It was like visiting an art exhibit at a gallery Many different styles were featured on the Art Style pages Some of these include Dreamtime art Australian Renaissance Baroue Impressionism Surrealism Street Art Modern Art and different kinds of sculpture African abstract I loved the stories told on these pages and loved learning about the artists who produced pieces during these periods or in this style The table of contents was pretty good as it listed the sections of the book as well as subjects in each of the sections The glossary was nicely laid out with clear concise definitions for terms used in art Unfortunately the book does not have an all encompassing index It did however have a listing of the artists featured in the book Highly recommended For information about this book please visit DK's websiteI'd like to thank Chris at DK Canada for this review copy Children's Book of Art by DK Publishing Dorling Kindersley DK ©2009 ISBN 9780756655112Hardcover 141pThis review is also available on my blog Daisy's Book Journal
