Hard Cover, Used-Very Good
Showcasing the world-famous collection of paintings housed in London’s National Gallery, this engaging introductory guide provides a first look at art, as well as an unprecedented interactive experience through a free app that allows kids to create their own virtual gallery at home. Although it touches upon a wide range of works, the heart of the book focuses on the movements and artists of the Western European tradition between the thirteenth and nineteenth centuries. Each spread is filled with glorious images of famous paintings and informative, bite-sized chunks of text that enhance understanding of each painting’s historical and cultural impact. “Did you know?” and “Art Lesson” feature boxes appear throughout to offer an extra level of information that includes art theory, fun facts, and projects.
