about

From Monet to Renoir and from Boston to Paris, kids search famous paintings to complete a checklist of things to find in each.

Are You an Art Sleuth? You probably are.

Each of the twenty full-page paintings, drawn from museums around the world, are fun, lively, and full of small details, that can be spotted, counted and checked off a list of things to find. Invite children to see what they can discover when they look at art very closely.

Following each close-up is an accompanying spread full of fun facts and activities related to the painting and the story it tells. Prepared by a member of the education staff of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the facts and historical bits are specially selected and written to engage young children and encourage them to come in closer and have fun looking at art.

Some of the artists included in the book are Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat, Fra Angelico, Vittore Carpaccio, William Hogarth, Quentin Metsys, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, William Holman Hunt, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Breughel, and Henri Rousseau.

Brooke DiGiovanni Evans has been a museum educator, working with young children for fourteen years. She is a graduate of Harvard, and previously worked for the Peabody Essex Museum She is now the head of gallery learning at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
