Description
This delightful art appreciation book encourages readers 8 to 11 to look closely at great paintings, particularly in terms of how the artist has rendered qualities of light to create the image. Beginning with the dramatic light of Caravaggio's The Conversion of St. Paul, Gillian Wolfe (director of Learning and Public Affairs at Britain's Dulwich Picture Gallery) describes the dappled light of Renoir's The Swing, the rainy light of Hiroshige's Sudden Shower on Ohashi Bridge, the reflected light of Escher's Three Worlds, and the textures of light in Van Gogh's Road with Cypress and Star. The 18 works are seen in large reproductions and close-up details, and the artists are introduced in a thumbnail index.
