Synopsis

Faces, Places and Inner Spaces A Guide to Looking at Art by Jean Sousa

In the faces found in art (portraits, self-portraits, masks, etc.), readers discover how people from different cultures and times saw themselves. By looking at landscapes and cityscapes, readers become aware of everyday life as well as times from the past that don't exist anymore as well as a glimpse of the future. Among the works included are an African mask, a West Mexican clay-pole dance scene, a Hindu sculpture, a Chinese screen, a Japanese actor print, as well as Surreal objects by Cornell, paintings by Van Gogh, Miro, and others. This work includes a 'mirror' so kids can look at and discuss their own face and an acetate sheet bound in to use for other activities.
