Description

Artists who want to tell a story in their works have to solve a problem: how to get the storyline across through still images. This wonderfully attractive book explores how artists have done this by looking at a wide variety of works by Giordano, Gentileschi, Martineau, Wright of Derby, Grant Wood, Dorothea Lange, Ousmane Sow and Rousseau. 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.
