Product Description:

Step 1: look carefully at one of the paintings in this book for 30 seconds. Step 2: identify as many details as you can. Step 3: turn the page and see if you can answer 10 questions about the painting. The pictures of the paintings are shown as if you are in an art gallery or museum. I had previously seen several of these paintings and I still did not get all of the questions correct! It really made me look for details as I went to the next painting knowing what the questions were like. What color was the sky? What was the woman holding? Can we see their facial expressions? Are they looking the same direction? You can check all of the answers in the back. A final test checks how much you remember about the whole book of pictures! Whether you are new to the art world or consider yourself well versed, these are a fun challenge and strengthen visual memory. Twenty eight paintings include works by VanGogh, DaVinci, Monet, Munch, Kahlo, Leyster, Velasquez, Rousseau and more. 64pp, pb, 9x9" ~ Sara
