Synopsis

I Spy Shapes in Art Shapes in Art by Lucy Micklethwait

From the author of I SPY - AN ALPHABET IN ART; and I SPY - NUMBERS IN ART, another title containing a selection of fine art paintings from artists worldwide and throughout history, combined with a simple game of shape spotting. I spy with my little eye...a square a diamond ten circles Each magnificent painting in this book has a different shape for you to find - some are easy, but some are difficult. And when you have found them all, there are lots of other interesting things to spot. Lucy Micklethwait has selected a wonderful range of fine art by painters including Escher, Warhol, Matisse and Magritte. With a gloriously reproduced piece of art on each spread, this title is the ultimate picture-puzzle challenge for children, making art accessible and fun.

Reviews

Micklethwait's choice may be unorthodox but it makes sense (and allows parents the option of showing off: Little Pablo just adores Joaquin Torres-Garcia's Form, Structure and Objects ). Sunday Telegraph
