Synopsis

Places by Philip Yenawine

This is one of a series of books on modern art created to help very young people learn the basic vocabulary used by artists, a sort of ABC of art. This book isolates the key elements of place to see how places are depicted by artists and how they help to convey meaning in art. Notes at the back of each book provide brief background information that adults will find useful when talking with children about the images reproduced in these books.
