A unique combination of history, biography, and artistic techniques, the clear narrative of this exciting series provides an overview of the development of different types of art and artistic movements. These colorful titles explore the roots and influences of different genres and key components that define the style. In addition to discussing the pioneers of the art, each subject-specific title considers the changes the genre has undergone from its inception to its present status on the world scene.
"Like other volumes by Marcovitz in Lucent's Eye on Art series, this one is accessible and will be of interest to middle school students, but older students and adults will find this a valuable introduction to an art form that will continue to gain popularity in the West for years to come. Highly recommended for middle school, high school and public libraries."
