Colors: A First Art Book

Front Cover
Lincoln Children's Books, Apr 7, 2005 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 24 pages

In this book, eighteen dynamic paintings from around the world feature simple, colorful, child-friendly forms -- animals, fruits, vegetables, flowers, birds, trees, boats, sunsets, insects, people, and more -- to teach the concept of color. For example, to illustrate the color of blue, children see Vincent van Gogh's Vincent's House at Arles that shows a house with a blue sky backdrop as well as Ando Hiroshige's The Sea at Satta in Suruga Province that features a light blue sea.The simple text focuses attention almost entirely on the paintings, which range from the work of old masters to contemporary talents, and notes on the artwork can be found at the back of the book.
