Overview

In every part of the world, in every generation, the landscape and environment have fascinated and inspired artists. They have expressed their feelings through paintings, or altered their surroundings by making gardens or sculptures. Whatever forms their creations have taken, artists have managed to capture their visions of the environment for us to share. This book explains how art styles have developed through time, and how artists' techniques add to our understanding of their work. The subject of war and conflict is captured in a wide range of media, including photography, painting, sculpture, posters, textiles, and film. The information to help interpret works of art and understand the time in history in which they were created are included in this book.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4–7
Using simple yet descriptive language and good-quality, full-color reproductions, Bingham describes works of art and links them to the central theme in each book. Emotion has chapters such as "Family Feelings," "Happiness and Contentment," and "Sickness and Pain," and includes works by Thomas Gainsborough, Frans Hals, and Frida Kahlo, respectively. Landscape is broken down by location and/or time period into such topics as "Ancient Gardens," "Romantic Landscapes," and "Landscapes of the Renaissance." In each book, a variety of artwork is highlighted, including sculpture, paintings, jewelry and costume, literature, opera, and, in the case of Landscape , altered landscapes such as gardens and the large-scale work of Christo. Likewise, there is a wide variety in the cultures and ethnicities represented. The layout is consistent and leaves space around both text and picture for easy readability. A time line and world map help readers to understand the scope of the artwork. Both students and teachers will enjoy these informative looks at the way art fits into our lives.
