This exciting new art title will focus on how artists tell us what the figures in their paintings are feeling without using words. Each beautiful picture tells something about the subject's inner feelings, attitude or mood. Readers will be encouraged to explore how faces express thoughts, look at how body language exposes states of mind, discover the ways hand gestures show intention and drama.
