This delightful and engaging introduction to the history of art for children comes in a beautiful oversized format and features intricate illustrations with hidden details. Children love to pore over detailed illustrations, especially when they contain hidden elements for them to find. This endlessly entertaining book opens up entire historic periods to young readers in double page spreads that are teeming with life and meticulously drawn to teach them about artistic traditions. Each spread represents a moment in history, capturing how art was integrated into daily life and illustrating contemporary styles, tools, and mediums. Children will learn about cave paintings and what humans used for light and why they painted so many animals and hunting scenes. They’ll find themselves in Ancient Greece, where deities watch over a busy marketplace in front of the Parthenon. A cross-section of a medieval monastery, Leonardo’s workshop, and a collection of 19th century artists painting in nature are just a few more of the examples, which take readers through to the present day. Featuring additional information including facts and anecdotes that enhance the experience of learning, a book to turn to again and again, Where’s the Artist? provides an ingenious and beautifully executed tutorial on art history that will captivate children of any age.
