Synopsis

The Art Book for Children by Amanda Renshaw

Another thirty artists from the Renaissance to the present day are explored in this second volume of the bestselling Art Book for Children. Each spread is illustrated by one or more works by the artist and accompanied by a fun and involving text that introduces the reader to the artist and invites children to look more closely at each of the variety of paintings, sculptures and photographs included here.
