The book is divided by the most significant artistic movements of the past century - Impressionism, Expressionism, Abstract, Illustration, Pop Art and Street art - and each masterpiece is accompanied by the riveting story of its significance and two step-by-step art activities that are inspired by its techniques and visual effects.
