Synopsis

13 American Artists Children Should Know by Brad Finger

Who was Whistler's mother? Why did Georgia O'Keeffe paint all those flowers? How did Joseph Cornell create his incredible boxes? These questions and more are answered in this book on American artists designed to catch young readers' attention and satisfy their unending curiosity. Each artist is featured in double-page spreads that are as unique as their subjects. Fascinating biographical portraits, interesting sidebars, and ideas to spark the imagination enhance the exquisite reproductions of well-known works. Presented chronologically, these profiles are strung together by a continuous timeline that highlights world events that impacted the artists' work. Children and adults alike will find much to learn, savour, and enjoy in this colourful introduction that is both interactive and edifying-not to mention fun.
