Synopsis

Red - Yellow - Blue Colors in Art by Silke Vry

What better way to learn about art's greatest masterpieces than through the lens of colour? From the richest red through the most royal purple to the cheeriest yellow, this book explores how artists through the ages have used colour in concept, symbolism, composition and theme. As they read the book, children are invited to wander through a virtual art gallery where each room features a different colour. Beginning with black and white, going through the primary colours, the mixed colours, and finishing with brown and gold, the book presents the evolution of pigment in art works from cave drawings to contemporary paintings. In addition, entertaining puzzles, quizzes and activities will spark children's creativity. Beautifully designed for reading alone or with an adult, Red Yellow Blue gives children access to the complex world of colour in a language and style they will respond to and enjoy.

Reviews
