School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 5-8-These series titles consider each artist in the context of the era in which he lived. Following a quick introduction to the man's creative achievements, each book covers aspects of his life and career in two-page spreads. The well-captioned visuals include photos, maps, and reproductions of artwork by the artist or other painters that served as inspiration. A time line at the bottom of alternating pages takes readers through key dates, while sidebars and occasional spreads provide historical background. Undocumented quotes appear throughout the books. Web sites listed include museums, some with virtual tours. These titles have both report and browsing potential.-Julie E.
