A perfect introduction to art for children everywhere, The Art Book, Children''s Edition brings the clarity and innovation of Phaidon''s best-selling The Art Book to our youngest readers ever. An A to Z guide of 30 great artists - each featured on a double-page spread -and their most famous works designed for both parent and child to enjoy together. The book encourages the children to look closely at the featured works and use their imagination to understand why artists choose to create the pieces they do and in the ways that they do. From Leonardo''s Renaissance masterpiece Mona Lisa to Andy Warhol''s iconic Marilyn, from Jeff Koons'' exuberant, flower-encrusted Puppy to Botticelli''s beautiful, flower-strewn Primavera, 30 works have been selected from The Art Book especially forthis edition, chosen for their vital importance in art history as well as their appeal to children. The giants of art history - Van Gogh, Matisse, Rembrandt, Turner and Vel+zquez - are all here, but this edition also offers its readers an introduction to challenging, recent artists including Cindy Sherman and Donald Judd. The Art Book, Children''s Edition makes this broad, exciting selection of 30 key works across the history of art clear and accessible to children from age seven and upwards, but will be of interest to readers of all ages.
