Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Books can provide great pre-museum experiences. In her Looking at Paintings series, the author, an artist who teaches art to families at the Metropolitan, explains the lives, hopes, fears and artistic choices of artists. She tells paintings like stories. Another book in this series is entitled Landscapes.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Among the paintings of Horses Peggy Roalf selected for her fine introduction-to-art series, youngsters will discover works that adorn walls, amphoras, illuminated manuscripts, canvases and cardboard. They reflect many cultures and range in age from a 17,000-year-old cave drawing to an optical illusion painted by Magritte 30 years ago. The pages facing each colorful reproduction contain Ms. Roalf's comments on the artist's background, his time (sadly, no women's works are included), and the work itself.
