       Step 1: look carefully at one of the paintings in this book for 30 seconds. Step 2: identify as many details as you can. Step 3: turn the page and see if you can answer 10 questions about the painting. The pictures of the paintings are shown as if you are in an art gallery or museum. I had previously seen several of these paintings and I still did not get all of the questions correct! It really made me look for details as I went to the next painting knowing what the questions were like. What color was the sky? What was the woman holding? Can we see their facial expressions? Are they looking the same direction? You can check all of the answers in the back. A final test checks how much you remember about the whole book of pictures! Whether you are new to the art world or consider yourself well versed, these are a fun challenge and strengthen visual memory. Twenty eight paintings include works by VanGogh, DaVinci, Monet, Munch, Kahlo, Leyster, Velasquez, Rousseau and more. 64pp, pb, 9x9” ~ Sara

      I used posters in my classroom to reinforce the topics we were learning. I figured that if a child was going to look around, their eyes may as well rest on something meaningful! This set includes 8 topics on 4 large perforated posters (you can separate them or not): cubism, post-impressionism, surrealism, realism, romanticism, expressionism, impressionism and baroque. Below each title is a short definition followed by characteristics, influences and artists with a painting next to each. The colors are bright and lovely! Set includes eight 11”x17” posters on card stock. ~Sara

    Five hundred pages of art history in a 5x6.5" book? What? Yes, it's true and I love it! Imagine a big beautiful coffee table style book, full of beautiful color photos arranged chronologically, that you can easily pick up and read. It is a comprehensive reference book with a helpful index in the back, perfect for adding to any art curriculum or even your world history program. Periods include pre- and early history (40,000-500 BCE); antiquity; late antiquity & the middle ages; renaissance; baroque; 18th century; 19th century; 20th century before 1945; and art after 1945. For families concerned about nudity, there are several statues and paintings depicting both males and females in various states of undress. I counted about 50 among the 900 images in the book. The variety of artists is outstanding. The text is interesting and very readable, and the information is factual and solid. For a student interested in art, this book is a must have. 512pp, pb (1.5" thick). ~ Sara

    More than just artist biographies, this book goes behind the scenes of many great works of art from a variety of periods and styles. Everyone from the Dutch masters to modern American artists are here. Gorgeous color photos accompany interesting text. There are 40 projects for students to try themselves, ranging from writing a poem to making a collage to creating an action figure or puppet and writing a story about it. Over 50 artists including Rembrandt, Matisse, Degas, O’Keefe, and Calder. It’s a different approach to an art book and I quite liked it. In fact, I read the whole book! It could be a good starting point for a unit study or just add it to any art program at home or at school. 175 pp, sc. ~ Sara

    Highlighting the masterpieces of 20 great painters from the 15th to 20th century, you will dig deeper into the works of both householdname artists as well as more unfamiliar artists – the mix includes van Eyck, Botticelli, Millais,
    Morisot, Chardin, Uccello, and Gaugin, among others. Study a masterpiece from each artist, examining how its unique elements were created. Hone in on certain aspects and compare this work to others by the same artist. The text takes a unique approach in describing the art: it is written as though we are standing there as the artist works. The author’s style is explained in a conversational, story-like form. While I found this style appealing and easily digestible, be aware that the author does take a certain level of liberty, such as fictionalizing some of
    the artist’s thoughts and feelings. This book also analyzes the original intended audience, how the painters bucked established artistic trends, and how audiences have responded through the years. This is a beautiful book with 134 illustrations (126 in color), including a full reproduction of each highlighted masterpiece. With each painting, the “Why Don’t You?” inset suggests an activity, such as journaling, a visit to an art museum, or drawing horizon and perspective. Note: a handful of paintings and sculptures with nude subjects are selected. For each artist, you will also find a portrait and web links to view
    additional artwork; a chronology is in the back. Includes a glossary and a list of art museums to visit. 10” x 11 ¾”, 96 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    Another great addition to the Fandex family. This guide holds 50 die-cut cards, fastened together so you can flip through without losing any of the cards. Each card contains short biographies and little known facts of some of the greatest painters. The cards are topped with a picture of the artist, and at least one of their paintings appears somewhere on their card. Beginning with Giotto (born around 1266, according to my Fandex guide), you'll learn about well known and little known artists, even more recent artists. A compact Who's Who of painters. ~ Melissa
