Using works by great masters as examples, How to Look at Art explores how artists throughout the centuries have portrayed motion, color, light, distance, and more through their paintings. Beginning artists will first see a work in full, then the same painting broken down into details. Finally, young artists will be able to use these examples to create their own masterpieces.

Words are not always necessary to tell a story. Some stories are told in a single painting. In this book, readers can see stories told by different artists through their detailed paintings. In the end, beginning artists can use these examples when creating their own stories through paint.
