Life and Work of Artists Series

All > Art / Crafts > ART HISTORY / APPRECIATION > Artist Biographies > Life and Work of Artists Series

An excellent series of artists' biographies for early readers. Each page of the biography features several simple sentences about the artists' life, with art terms and other more difficult words printed in bold. Each two-page spread features a period in the artist's life, and includes works of art from that period, a photo of the artist, or a watercolor picture of the artist at work. The illustrations, reproductions of the artist's work, and even the covers are large and full-color, absorbing to even younger children. Often details about the paintings are pointed out to the reader, for their closer investigation. Also, the included content is child-friendly, and I found no inappropriate or offensive material in the three samples I previewed (Da Vinci, Degas, and Cassatt). Some of the names as well as the painting names are likely to be somewhat of a challenge for early readers, so you may wish to read them together as well. A glossary of the bold terms is included, as well as a timeline of the artist's life, a list of other books to read about that particular artist, and their actual artwork to see, should the reader happen to visit American art museums.
