Enjoying Great Art Series:

Umbrellas are a part of our everyday life. But do we think of them when we think of great art?
Here is a picture book for adults and students of all ages...A picture book of umbrellas (used to keep off the rain) and parasols (to keep off the sun) in art! Different colors, shapes, sizes...Some that are only small parts of the painting, some which are the focus of the painting.
You can look through these paintings that span many centuries, and notice the similarities and the differences between them...See the colors, the textures and patterns, and more. Take note of whether there are people included in the different paintings, and if so, if men, women, or children are more often portrayed. And most of all, enjoy!

Note to parents: All of the paintings selected for the books in this series are child-friendly - but we aren't necessarily recommending all of the other paintings by these same artists! If you and your children want to go exploring after this - please exercise caution.

Meet the Author

Catherine's appreciation for "Great Art" started slowly. Beginning with a love of all things Leonardo da Vinci, in recent years she branched out to Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, and Norman Rockwell. And there her love of art sat for many years. Only in the last few years has she come to recognize and enjoy the works of many other artists, and in the process has fallen in love with many of their paintings, both well-known and not so well-known.

This series started simply: a few books to introduce children to art and artists they might not have known - all arranged along a single theme (first hats, then with animals, then bridges, and so it went). Before long she had multiplied her efforts and her books, all the while introducing not just her students, but also many adults to the vast array of artwork that so many of us sadly neglect.
