13 Painters Children Should Know by Florian Heine

It's never too early to introduce children to art. Featuring thirteen painters from a variety of historical periods and styles, this book demonstrates just how interesting and exciting art can be. From the fantastic images of Hieronymus Bosch to the romantic idealism of Titian, the gorgeous colours of Cezanne to Jean-Michel Basquiat's African- and street art-inspired figures - each painter is presented in chronologically arranged double-page spreads that feature beautiful reproductions, interesting facts, biographical information, and comparisons to other painters. Fun to read and informative, this latest addition to the Children Should Know series offers young readers inspiration and encouragement to develop a further interest in all kinds of art.
