No female artists in this book!!,
This review is from: Famous Artists (Usborne Art Books) (Paperback)
I would have given this book 5 stars as its well written and nicely presented for children but as my 9 year old daughter read through pages and pages of famous artists I suddenly realised that they did not include one female artist for her to get inspiration from! And that has ruined it for me (and her). In this day and age it is important to include women as a strong role model and not just show the importance of male artists. I would look elsewhere for a book on artists for our growing generation to read.
And in case you are interested here are some famous female artists they could have included: Frida Kahlo, Sarah Peale, Catherine Critcher, Georgia O'Keeffe,
