Description

Mike Venezia

Clever illustrations and story lines, together with full-color reproductions of actual paintings, give children a light yet realistic overview of each artist's life and style in the fun and educational book series Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists. Vermeer painted slowly, and when he died at age 43 he left relatively few paintings behind. But what paintings they are! Viewers around the world long to lose themselves in Vemeer’s universe of calm, still, beautifully illuminated domesticity. Mike Venezia introduces Vermeer and the Dutch Golden Age with careful text and gentle cartoon humor.
