School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 UpThis unabridged recording of the book by Kathleen Krull (Harcourt, 1995) is read by John C. Brown and Melissa Hughes. There are biographies of 20 artists from a variety of nations and schools, but the majority are Western European or American. Those included are Michelangelo, DaVinci, Bruegel, Anguissola, Rembrandt, Hokusai, Cassatt, Van Gogh, Kollwitz, Matisse, Picasso, Chagall, Duchamp, O'Keeffe, Johnson, Dali, Noguchi, Rivera, Kahlo, and Warhohl. The mini-biographies, about six minutes each, cover traditional information about the artists and their works as well as unusual gossipy tidbits about the artists' personalities. Each section concludes with a list of art works. The narration is clear and interesting. Art teachers could use the tapes to introduce the artists, possibly supplemented with visuals of their works. The tape could also be used in part as a teaser for further research or to promote reading of the book.Sue Davis, Cedar Falls High School, IA
