Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Great Artists series launches with a quartet of paper-over-board biographies, including analysis and reproductions of their masterpieces, as well as timelines of important events during their lifetimes. Great Artists: Michelangelo by Roberto Carvalho de Magalhaes, for instance, features the sculpture David, for which Michelangelo "employed all his knowledge of human anatomy and classical art," and The Creation of Adam, the famous scene on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Leonardo Da Vinci by Maria Teresa Zanobini Leoni takes a look at the Italian artist's The Last Supper and Mona Lisa (La Gioconda). Featured works in the study of the French Impressionist Claude Monet also by Magalhaes include The Poppies at Argenteuil and his series of oil paintings based on Rouen Cathedral. Paul Gauguin by Maria Siponta De Salvia examines the works of this French painter who lived in Tahiti for many years, including Two Women on the Beach and Ea Haere la Oe (Where Are You Going?). (Nov.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This book is one of five books currently in the "Great Artists" series, by Roberto Carvalho de Magalhães, who is a professor of Art History and Musicology at the International University of Art in Florence. He begins with a brief biography of Monet's life, including a definition of impressionism. Then he analyzes some of Monet's paintings, giving background on when and under what circumstances they were painted, as well as on techniques specific to each picture. In the process, he includes many details of Monet's life, making the artist come alive to the reader. Sidebars throughout the book present additional detailed information on what was happening in the world at the time Monet made each painting, as well as explanations of specific topics such as spatial depth or the Rouen Cathedral series. The book is beautifully illustrated with twenty full color reproductions of Monet's work. While the text is most appropriate for young adults, the pictures can certainly be used with younger children. 2002, Enchanted Lion Books, Ages 14 to 18.
— Kathy Egner, Ph.D.
KLIATT
Extraordinarily well illustrated and edited, each of these little books traces the life and work of a great artist while placing him in his historical context. Sidebars provide details in the artist's life, but the main text focuses on a detailed analysis of the style and technique of the major work shown on each page. Technical vocabulary such as cloisonnisme and stiacciato are defined as they are used; diagrams illustrate perspective; maps trace the travels of the artists. Relatively inexpensive, these books provide excellent introductions to the works of these artists. There is, however, much frontal nudity depicted, by Michelangelo and Gauguin especially. (Great Artists series). KLIATT Codes: JS*--Exceptional book, recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2005, Enchanted Lion, 40p. illus. maps. index., each. Ages 12 to 18.
—Patricia Moore
Library Journal
Gr 6-9-These three titles provide exceptionally good reproductions and detailed analyses of the artists' works in relation to their lives and times. The language, however, is complex and above the heads of the students that the design would indicate. The books are not biographies; they devote only a page at the beginning to a brief sketch of the artist's life, and offer incidental information throughout the rest of the texts. Additional facts appear in top and side margins, but the reason for separating facts this way is not clear, and makes for awkward reading. For example, in Monet, the death of the artist's first wife and his second marriage are noted in the sidebars; students reading only the main texts will wonder who this other woman is. Da Vinci barely makes mention of the man's accomplishments in the sciences. The titles on Monet and Gauguin in the "Artists in Their Time" series (Watts) are better choices on these men; there are many excellent titles on da Vinci. Select these volumes only if you need additional information on the artwork, not the artists.-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
