A picture is the only way that we can communicate what we see, as artist David Hockney told critic Martin Gayford in A History of Pictures. Here they adapt their engaging survey of art history for readers 9 to 12, with embellishments throughout from illustrator Rose Blake. Hockey and Gayford introduce such artists as Caravaggio, Velazquez, Degas, and Hopper, and juxtapose unexpected pairs of images—like a still image from Pinocchio with a woodblock print by Hiroshige—to make connections across the ages, while taking stock of how art has expanded into the realms of photography, film, and digital media.
