A colorful, playful guide to the world of art—from major movements to how the artistic mind works and how to behave in an art gallery

Cool Art, a neat primer on all things art, introduces all the key characters, moments, and movements in the history of art to the present day. From Caravaggio to Banksy, the Renaissance to Minimalism, young readers can explore the ideas, meaning, and techniques behind the world's masterpieces, with a hefty dose of fun along the way. Much more than a basic history of art, this fascinating book explains how color works, how to have a profound experience in an art gallery (and what not to say while you're there), and how to tap into one's own innate creativity and become an artist. Packed with intriguing and playful images, this is an ideal gift for all ages—not only will it engage young people in creative ideas, it will also provide a feast of useful facts for adults to impress their friends with at dinner parties.

Simon Armstrong is the book buyer for Tate Modern and Tate Britain.
