This series employs a multi-cultural approach, dealing with art from around the world, looking at how different cultures, countries and eras have had their own influence on the most celebrated art movements. Starting with movements such as Realism, discovering early Impressionism in the 1870s, through pointillism to post impressionism, this title looks at all aspects of Impressionism. Taking artists such as Monet and Seurat as a starting point this title looks at how Impressionism influenced subsequent art, and how its artists were influenced by other cultures, countries and eras.
Antony Mason has written many books for young children on art, artists and art movements, including Famous Artists, a successful series in the USA. He travels widely and lives in London.
