Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Brief overviews of the lives of two of America's most famous female artists illustrated with photographs, engravings, and full-color reproductions of their work. The artists' feelings and opinions are frequently quoted (though not documented), making the texts lively and readable but not necessarily the best sources for reports. Although the prose is slightly choppy in places, Brooks provides good descriptions of both women's backgrounds and their determination to express their artistic visions in the context of their times. Michael Berry's Georgia O'Keeffe (1988) and Michael Cain's Mary Cassatt (1989, both Chelsea) are more detailed biographies for slightly older students.-Carol Torrance, Lincoln School, Kearny, NJ
