Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The unique vision of the world as experienced by a variety of modern artists is celebrated in this charming book. Beautifully reproduced paintings illustrate the particular ways in which Georgia O'Keefe saw flowers, Piet Mondrian saw squares, Paul Klee saw fish and Vincent van Gogh saw stars. A simple rhyming text emphasizes the unique vision of each of the sixteen featured artists and closes with a statement validating the individual way each reader sees the world. A list of the paintings and biographical notes about the artists makes this a good introduction to the world of fine art. 2002, Millbrook Press, $23.90 and $9.95. Ages All.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 4-The singularity of artistic vision is celebrated in this gentle text. Serving as a basic introduction to the work of fine modern artists from Renoir to Kandinsky, it looks at individual painters and the special way in which they see the world. ("No one saw Sunday like Georges Seurat." "No one saw fish like Paul Klee.") A single painting reveals the unique perspective that distinguishes the individuals. The motifs for which the artists are best known are highlighted, e.g., Georgia O'Keeffe's wondrous renderings of flowers and Mary Cassatt's glowing portraits of mothers and children. The last statement that "Artists express their own point of view. And nobody sees the world like you" provides wonderful encouragement for children to explore and share their uniqueness through the visual arts and other mediums. While this book is appropriate for young art aficionados, the sophistication of the work and concepts surrounding the individuality of artistic expression makes it useful with older children as well. The reproductions are clear and are identified in an appended list, and brief biographical notes are included.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
