Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Mary Cassatt ( 1844-1926) painted at a time when it was frowned upon for a woman to work. Furthermore, she was an American, and critics thought little of American art. But, this remarkable woman studied abroad and was eventually accepted into the Paris Salons. She began to paint scenes of everyday life and became well known for her paintings of mothers with children. Mary was instrumental in showing the importance of women. Each page of the concise text is accompanied by a photograph on one of this remarkable woman's paintings or prints. The book is part of the "Masterpieces: Artists and Their Works" series and contains a table of contents, timeline, glossary, index, and internet sites. 2004, Bridgestone Books/Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Well-designed, small-format introductory biographies. The simple, direct texts cover the artists' early childhoods, training, influences, work, and legacies. Each spread has a captioned color reproduction. For the most part, the illustrations are clear and large enough to examine easily. Hoena describes how Cassatt overcame prejudice against women artists, her European travels, and her association with the Impressionists. Niz focuses on Rembrandt's use of light and shadow and discusses his innovative etchings. Sturm describes Matisse's different styles. These titles are comparable to those in Mike Venezia's "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series (Children's), but they are a bit more text heavy. Although the books do not explain specific paintings in detail, they would work well alongside the "Art for Children" series (Stewart, Tabori, and Chang).-Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
