School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-Picasso and Matisse are arguably two of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Their works and philosophies brought about a revolution in modern art and birthed artistic movements. These titles examine their personal and professional lives in the context of the times in which they lived. The clear and lively texts also discuss their influences and legacies in two-page, chronological chapters. A time line runs along the bottom of many pages. Captioned, full-color and black-and-white photographs and art reproductions are liberally scattered throughout. A step up from Mike Venezia's "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series (Children's), these accessible books are worthy additions to most collections.-Heather E.
