School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-Well-designed, small-format introductory biographies. The simple, direct texts cover the artists' early childhoods, training, influences, work, and legacies. Each spread has a captioned color reproduction. For the most part, the illustrations are clear and large enough to examine easily. Hoena describes how Cassatt overcame prejudice against women artists, her European travels, and her association with the Impressionists. Niz focuses on Rembrandt's use of light and shadow and discusses his innovative etchings. Sturm describes Matisse's different styles. These titles are comparable to those in Mike Venezia's "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series (Children's), but they are a bit more text heavy. Although the books do not explain specific paintings in detail, they would work well alongside the "Art for Children" series (Stewart, Tabori, and Chang).-Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
