A perfect introduction to art history for kids as young as seven, The Art Book for Children is a guide to great artists and their most famous works. From Leonardo's iconic Mona Lisa to Andy Warhol's equally iconic Marilyn, and from Jeff Koons's exuberant, flower-encrusted Puppy to Grant Wood's severe American Gothic, 30 artists have been selected from Phaidon Press's best-selling Art Book for their significance in art history as well as their appeal to children.
The giants of art history are all here — Van Gogh, Matisse, Rembrandt, Turner, and Velazquez, to name a few. But The Art Book for Children also offers its readers an introduction to challenging recent artists including Cindy Sherman and Donald Judd.
