The Lovereading4Kids comment

This book details the main features of Modern Art from the 1870's to the present day. Stunning illustrations as well as excellent explanations as to how different types of art developed and how they related to the events going on in the world at the time.
Each section of the book covers a major period of art history and there are many important works that are looked at in depth. There are excellent links to selected websites and a super useful section containing short biographies on the artists contained in the book.
An exciting and beautifully presented book, it is a real pleasure for anyone who wants to explore and find a greater understanding of the far ranging world of modern art.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
