Book - 2005
Rate this:

Artists have used many different tricks and techniques to capture movement in their paintings or sculptures. This wonderfully attractive book explores these by looking at a wide variety of art including works by Seurat, Delacroix, van Gogh, Monet, Hokusai, Turner, Jackson Pollock, Escher, Vasarely, Delauney and Munch.

Inspired by the method used in galleries and museums in talking about art with children, readers are invited to look at the works and think about what the artists have done and why. Details in the works are pointed out and questions are posed for readers to think about.

Outline information about the artists and the works (including a graphic representation of the works' relative sizes) are provided at the back of the book. A glossary and index are included.

Ideal for curriculum work at KS2 and KS3, these books will inspire readers of 9 - 12 to look at art in new ways.
