Art Is... by Bob Raczka, Paperback | Barnes & Noble

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A variety of artistic expressions invite young readers to re-examine paintings they may take for granted or that might once have intimidated them. Art Is by Bob Raczka pairs a simple rhyming text with a wide range of artwork designed to expand readers' appreciation of what constitutes art. For example, "Art is to kneel on" depicts an Anatolian prayer rug, while "Art is pasted" accompanies a Romare Bearden collage. The final page pairs "Art is how artists get you to think" with an image of Auguste Rodin's "The Thinker." A simple design puts the intriguing images front and center, and for museumgoers, the home of each work is listed. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
