Format: Hardcover
Winner of the 2004 Key Stage 2 Non-Fiction Category in the English Association's 'English 4-11' Best Books Awards. This is an excellent reference book for older primary children, their teachers and for the general reader. it is a good resource for the National Curriculum Art programme and is internet linked for even more information. Even if you stay with the print resource there are 140 pages providing comprehensive coverage. There is a useful time-line, a list of artists and a scholarly glossary supported by a thorough index. A well organised introduction helps children think deeply about how to look at paintings, but essentially the book provides an historical perspective, taking readers from early wall paintings to current works. 'Behind the Scenes' is a splendid final section which informs about artists' materials and the tools artists use and have used, and gives up-to-date information about preservation. The reproduction of the paintings communicates the quality and essence of the works whilst the enlargements of parts of some works allow for focus and explanation: so for Botticelli's 'Venus and Mars' there is a thoughtful and informative analysis of, for example, 'ideal beauty' and why there are wasps flying round the head of Mars. Children will need help from the teacher, however, in grappling with challenging ideas like symbolic imagery and conceptual art.

I would recommend this book. My children love it. They have all done an art topic at school so they really enjoyed looking at it.
