5.0 out of 5 stars Never ending story of painting, 24 April 2010
This review is from: The Story of Painting (Hardcover)
This is art book to be treasured and look at again and again. Of course it is subjective interpretation of paintings but it opens readers mind to do individual guesses.
For example: is the candle on the picture just a candle or a symbol of the spirit? We can't know for sure over 500 years later. But each of us can decide for himself
what does it mean. Therefore we need writers to explain visual art to us, to feed our imagination.
THE STORY OF PAINTING is beautifully laid out and ventures gently into literature of the period depicted in the artwork.
I am looking foreword to lazy hours with this perfect friend "The story of painting".

5.0 out of 5 stars Get enchanted, 15 April 2010
Good selection of stories from across the world with beautiful pictures. What do you want more? For older children, I tried it on my 5 year old and the pictures work well (she went to pick snowdrops in the garden) but the language is to complex. If you are patient keep trying: things which we don't understand yet keep expanding our mind.
