Description

All-new edition of this successful title offers a series of simple talking points - according to three age ranges - about 30 famous paintings.

This is a children's art book for grown-ups. In everyday language it shows how to explain to children what to look for and how to enjoy paintings as diverse as a Renaissance religious scene, an impressionist portrait or modernist masters like Kandinsky and Picasso.

This new edition of How to Talk to Children about Art examines 30 paintings by great artists, from 1500 to the present day, in galleries around the world. The book gives examples of the kinds of questions a child might ask about the paintings, and provides straightforward answers. 'Who are the people in this painting?' 'Why has the artist used those colours?' 'How did the artist choose what to paint?' The book demystifies art appreciation and reveals that the simplest questions can be among the most pertinent. There is plenty that will stimulate children's interest in art and enlighten grown-ups too.
