Artists have pictured landscapes all over the world, at various times of day, in all weathers, and in every season. This wonderfully attractive book explores what they have seen, thought and felt in landscapes by looking at a wide variety of art including works by O'Keeffe, Magritte, Rubens, Martin, Hobbema, Altdorfer, Delauney, David Hockney, Hokusai, Turner, Seurat, van Gogh, Homer, Nash, Stella and Crali. Inspired by the method used in galleries and museums in talking about art with children, readers are invited to look at the works and think about what the artists have done and why. Details in the works are pointed out and questions are posed for readers to think about. Outline information about the artists and the works (including a graphic representation of the works' relative sizes) are provided at the back of the book. A glossary and index are included. Ideal for curriculum work at KS2 and KS3, these books will inspire readers of 9-12 to look at art in new ways.
LEO THOMSON has a degree in architecture and a special interest in landscape art.
