Synopsis

13 Art Illusions Children Should Know by Silke Vry

Children love to be fooled - and artists are some of the greatest tricksters around. This collection features artworks that incorporate a variety of methods for tricking our eyes: including trompe-l'oeil, clever uses of colour and perspective, surrealism and photorealism. Arranged thematically, each work is presented in a two-page spread. Lively texts explain the methods the artist employed to shape an illusion. Reproduced in vibrant colour, these pieces of ripe fruit, blooming flowers, a half-opened curtain, flickering lines and impossible worlds come alive on the page, providing hours of absorbing fun as readers are drawn into the stories behind their creation. Playful, intriguing, and educational, these great illusions are a terrific way to introduce children to the world of art.
