Showing Motion in Art

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Well-known artworks are used to point out how artists have created certain effects. In Motion, a hunt scene, attack on a town, and children playing games are a few of the scenes used to illustrate how artists depict movement. Motion in nature, such as the force, power and movement of a wave, are visible in The Great Wave of Kanagawe by Katsushika Hokusai. As with the other books in the series, there is a good selection of art representing a variety of styles. The last section of the book provides information about movement. The author urges kids to try their hand at painting by referring back to the book's earlier examples. The final section offers more information about the paintings used to illustrate the author's points. There is a glossary, list of web sites and an index. Part of a series of six books entitled "How to Look at Art." 2000 (orig. 1997), Gareth Stevens, Ages 8 up, $19.93. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
