Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
As other books in the series "Eyewitness Books," the emphasis is on visual information. We are presented with a chronological history of the medium, bits of technical insights, and a rich opportunity to familiarize ourselves with scores of examples that can enhance our appreciation of this range of human invention and skill. Topics such as "What is watercolor?" "Exploring new worlds," "The nude in watercolor" are designed as two-page spreads with from six to ten color reproductions, a paragraph of introductory overview, and elaborate captions. We can browse, letting the eyes determine where to linger, when to stop and read. The writing, while laden with factual information, is quite accessible. The nudes appear uncensored. This fine introduction to the subject includes a glossary, plus an appended section supplying details about each reproduction that adds to the value of the book. 2000 (orig. 1993), DK Publishing, Ages 9 up, $15.95. Reviewer: Ken Marantz
School Library Journal
YA-Providing a quick overview of the medium, this book will interest even reluctant readers. Each page is adorned with photographic reproductions of some of the world's finest paintings. Short paragraphs and blurbs provide quick points of reference for browsers. Because of its broad appeal, this volume will be quite useful to teachers, and should be included in basic art collections.
