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.
"Written for middle school to high school age students, the Eye on Art Series from Lucent Books provides an in-depth look into the various art movements. What makes this series special for students, however, are the beautiful full-color pictures that appear on nearly every page and the sidebars that discuss important aspects of the arts in further detail. This set is highly recommended for school and public libraries."
