Much as we may feel that children need to learn about great art, it can be surprisingly hard to articulate what is important about it. In this encouraging guide, questions and answers about 30 artworks—by such figures as Michelangelo, Hopper, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Turner—provide historical background, explain such genres as still life and portrait, and demystify religious and mythological themes. Recognizing that children encounter artworks differently depending on their maturity, the discussions are grouped by age, and all the works are shown in color illustrations.
