Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
These surveys cover a lot of ground about painting genres, including origins and development and practitioners of successive stylistic movements. The popularity and relevance of each form of painting throughout history are discussed. The reproductions are exceedingly fine, and a spacious design complements the content admirably. Vocabulary and concepts should be accessible to students who have already had exposure to art classes. - School Library Journal
