Synopsis

Start Exploring Masterpieces A Fact-filled Colouring Book by Steven Zorn

An artistic adventure awaits you! Masterpieces leads you on a guided tour of sixty paintings by some of the world's best artists. Each painting has been carefully redrawn and is ready to color--with crayons, colored pencils, markets, and your imagination. Accompanying each painting is a story that describes it and introduces you to the artist. See the world through the eyes of the great painters as you read these tales and color these pictures of kings, gypsies, flowers, parties, dancers, heroes, and more. Here are just some of the things you can do inside Masterpieces: * Visit exotic Tahiti with Gaugin * Choose a new suite for Gainsborough's Blue Boy * Take a dance lesson with Degas * See Venus, the goddess of love, rising from the ocean * Watch the stars with van Gogh * Join Renoir for a boating party * Fight for liberty with Delacroix * Meet Whistler's mother * Spend a Sunday afternoon in the park with Seurat * Go bird-watching with Audubon These priceless art treasures represent more than five hundred years of painting. Now you can color them yourself to create new masterpieces of your own.
