Description

In making images of families, artists choose to depict them in particular colours, settings, groups and poses to show something special about their relationships. This wonderfully attractive book explores these choices by looking at a wide variety of art including works by Rubens, David Hockney, Henry Moore, Stanley Spencer, Cranach the Elder, Mary Cassatt, Renoir, Peale, Gaugin, Matisse, Munch, Ford Maddox Brown and Jan Steen. 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.
