A fun way to learn about art! This simple, engaging introduction to art combines superb reproductions of an imaginative selection of artworks by artists ranging from Kandinsky and Seurat to Canaletto and Van Gogh. It also features works from great American artists such as Tom Wesselmann, Grant Wood, and Jacob Lawrence. With beautifully pitched text written by Susie Brooks supported by friendly cartoon-style illustrations, What's in the Picture? invites young children to search for particular objects or other detail in the paintings displayed. Further questions encourage children to examine each artwork and to explain, very simply, what is happening in the pictures.
