Category Description for If An Artist Painted a:

What a charming, clever way to introduce young students to the world of master artists and their unique styles that were characteristic of the art genres they were known to produce. Samples of various art forms include common objects children can relate to…snowman, dinosaur, or monster. Explore a cross section of what a snowman looks like painted by famous Cubism artist Picasso, or Impressionist Monet, or by Surrealist Salvador Dali. See how diversely fun and expressive these different art styles were in the vibrant paintings throughout. Quick biographies are offered in the back of the books for every artist featured. 40 pgs, hc. ~ Emily
