Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Rembrandt became a widely-respected and financially successful artist at a very young age. While in his 20s, Rembrandt cultivated important patrons in the Netherlands, which had become quite prosperous due to trade. Although he never left his country, Rembrandt studied the prints of foreign artists and was clearly influenced by them. In particular, Rembrandt took note of Italian masters such as Titian, Tintoretto, and da Vinci, and their religious art. He certainly made a mark with his biblical paintings, portraits, and copper etchings. Rembrandt married a woman he deeply loved. Their happiness was short-lived, however, when their first three children died soon after birth, and his wife died when their fourth child was an infant. After these personal tragedies, Rembrandt's star began to diminish. He led an extravagant lifestyle, which he could not support. He received fewer and fewer commissions because he failed to complete them in a timely manner. In addition, he began an affair with his child's nurse, which caused a scandal. Eventually, Rembrandt volunteered to turn over all his assets to creditors. Although he died impoverished, his international reputation had been assured. Rembrandt painted many self-portraits during his life. The human body was a favorite subject of his work, but he also displayed mastery with landscapes and print making. This title, which is highly recommended for elementary and middle-school art classes, is part of "The Lives of the Artists" series and contains a timeline for each chapter, historical and social details that support the topic of each chapter, and full-color photographic reproductions of the artist's work. 2005, World Almanac Library, Ages 9 to13.

Gr 8 Up-Connolly and Mason explore these artists' lives from birth through death. Their influences, styles, and mediums are related to readers in words and pictures and, quite importantly, so are the milieus in which they worked. Botticelli's Medici-controlled Florence, Rembrandt's Dutch golden age, and the experimental and innovative times of Chagall and Monet are all given emphasis. The artists' contemporaries and patrons are credited as well. The introductions contain overall chronologies of the men's lives, and time lines on each spread give a synopsis of the information presented. The books' design connects all of the related information on each spread, resulting in a layout similar to that of the "Eyewitness" books (DK): many associated paragraphs of text and pictures grouped on a spread and separated by white space or blocks of color. However, these titles have less white space, smaller type, more information, and a more sophisticated vocabulary than most "Eyewitness" titles. Though at times this makes the texts a challenge to read, the format works well to demonstrate the complexity of the artists' lives and times. The books contain numerous color reproductions and, when possible, related photographs.-Heather E. Miller, Homewood Public Library, AL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
