Angela  Wenzel - 13 Artists You Should Know


An excellent introduction for young readers to artists and their works

This book introduces 13 famous artists whose works appeal particularly to children. Cleverly formatted information, illustrations of major works, and a made-for-children glossary convey knowledge about the artists and their works. A timetable allows for easy historical orientation. Find the difference games, puzzles, and colouring exercises encourage participation and help children have fun discovering art.

Each artist is introduced with a photo and small portrait. A short text, suitable for the target age group, conveys the most important information about the artist and his work. Technical terms are marked and explained in the glossary. The art-historical, contemporary context is clearly presented at the beginning of each entry with the help of a timeline. 2-3 major works by each artist, represented in beautiful illustrations, are accompanied by short, descriptive texts that help bring the works to life. Games, quizzes, or coloring exercises provide additional motivation for active engagement with the pictures and texts. To satisfy more curious readers who would like to learn more about the artist, relevant information about museums, further reading, and websites is also included.
