From cave paintings to the pop art of Andy Warhol, and the Great Sphinx of Giza to sculptures of Jeff Koons, this reference book takes children on a tour of the most amazing artworks. The Children's Book of Art covers all the major developments in the worlds of oil painting, watercolours, pastels, and sculpture - from their early origins, to big names such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Frida Kahlo. Each artist's work is explained through a signature work, giving readers a visual tour of works such as Jan van Eyck's Arnolfini Portrait or Michelangelo's David. Special focus is also given to art from different places or eras, such as Aboriginal Dreamtime paintings, Chinese art, Renaissance painting, impressionism, modern art, and much more. The ideas behind each style are explained through gorgeous images and illuminating text. A must-have for any budding artists, The Children's Book of Art takes the most exciting works out of the gallery and into your hands.
