Stories of Art: Patterns from Nature (Art of Klimt)
This story illustrates how Klimt, an Austrian painter, expressed the inspiration from nature in his own style of the gold colored decoration in his paintings.
These are charming books! Each tells a story around the painter and works. The paintings help tell the story of what the artist saw around them. These are considered biographies, but with an element of historical fiction as well: interesting and readable! Illustrations are all inspired by the style of the artist. You are drawn into the art and really absorb it. In the back of each are several examples of the artists work and a basic timeline. Its nice to read a story about an artist, not just the facts of their lives and works. 9.5" x9.25", 34 pgs, pb. ~ Sara
