Overview

The next book in the Enjoying Great Art series is about an usual topic for art appreciation:

Necklaces may or may not be part of your day to day life. But do you think of them when you think of great art?

Here is a picture book for adults and students of all ages...A picture book of necklaces in art! There are more than three dozen paintings depicted on the following pages, paintings that span more than four centuries. As might be expected, most of the necklaces are worn by women - many of them women from very high positions.

Note of warning to parents/teachers - the paintings chosen for this book, as with the others in this series, are intentionally chosen to be child-friendly. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for many other paintings by some of these same artists (so please go investigating their other works cautiously!)

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.
