Overview

A perfect introduction to art for children everywhere, The Art Book for Children brings the clarity and innovation of Phaidon's bestselling Art Book to our youngest readers ever. A guide to 30 great artists and their most famous works, designed for both parent and child to enjoy together. The book encourages children to look closely and use their imagination to understand why artists choose to create the work they do and in the way that they do it.

From Leonardo's iconic Mona Lisa to Andy Warhol's equally iconic Marilyn, and from Jeff Koons' exuberant, flower-encrusted Puppy to Grant Wood's severe American Gothic, 30 artists have been selected from the original Art Book for their significance in art history as well as their appeal to children.

The giants of art history such as Van Gogh, Matisse, Rembrandt, Turner and Velazquez are all here, but the Art Book for Children also offers its readers an introduction to challenging, recent artists including Cindy Sherman and Donald Judd. The Art Book for Children makes this broad, exciting selection of 30 key artists across the history of art clear and accessible to children from age seven and upward, but will be of interest to readers of all ages.
