From School Library Journal Grade 5-9-These fascinating titles focus on 12 paintings by the featured artists, highlighting and discussing their unique styles and particular circumstances. How the men acquired their skills; the subject matter they painted; and the elements of composition (color, line, shape, perspective, balance, brushwork) are all examined. Biographical information is lightly interwoven throughout the narratives. The strength of the texts lies in the author's incisive ability to deftly capture the essence of each extremely varied artist. The full-color reproductions are excellent; many are full page. Students with an interest in art will find these books mesmerizing.
