Can You Find It? America Search and Discover More Than 150 Details in 20 Works of Art by Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Can You Find It? series has delighted countless children, inviting them to look more closely at works of art by searching for hidden details. Now comes a new title in the series featuring paintings, prints and textiles from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. From an eighteenth-century needlework landscape to nineteenth-century Currier & Ives prints to a humorous late twentieth-century painting of a chance encounter between two artists by Red Grooms, each work is characteristically American and each is filled with a wealth of details for children to search for and discover. Among the works featured are Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emmanuel Leutze, Across the Continent: Westward the Course of Empire Takes Its Way by Frances Flora Bond Palmer for Currier & Ives, The Last Moments of John Brown by Thomas Hovenden, Thanksgiving Turkey by Anna Mary Robertson, Grandma Moses, The Photographer by Jacob Lawrence, and Street Story Quilt by Faith Ringgold.
