13 British Artists Children Should Know [9783791370620]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
From William Blake's vibrant, visionary paintings to Antony Gormley's ever-popular sculptures, via the mysteries of Leonora Carrington and the cheeky fun of Beryl Cook, this colourful, chronologically arranged overview uses games, puzzles, and project ideas to encourage young people to appreciate the diverse ways in which British artists reflect their country's culture. Religious art, modern sculpture, exquisite landscapes and urban art are all presented in full-page spreads that engage children by inviting them into the works themselves, challenging them to answer questions about the artists' perceptions and exposing them to the fascinating historical forces that have shaped the artists' work. Children and adults alike will find much to learn, savour, and enjoy in this colourful introduction that is both interactive and edifying-not to mention great fun.
