Synopsis

Can You Find It? Search and Discover More Than 150 Details in 19 Works of Art by Judith Cressy

Discover all the intriguing details that make great art so fascinating. Each spread in this exciting new book offers a work of art and at least eight items to hunt for somewhere within the painting. Turn the thrill of artistic discovery into a trip through history and around the world, as Can You Find It? invites young readers to look into shadows and reflections, through windows and in the branches of trees. * Find a baby and a yellow bowl in a busy scene from ancient China. * Find a traffic light and a pair of pinky rings in a quiet snack bar of a movie theater. * Find three hands and a white bird in a portrait of a five-year-old French king alone on his throne. * Find five butterflies and two owls in an Egyptian tomb painting. * Find a water pump and a haystack in a view down Main Street in small-town America. The nineteen paintings in Can You Find It?, all from the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, include art ranging from ancient Egyptian friezes to 20th-century works. This book is a great tool to show young readers a wonderful new way to look at art.
