Description

Roxie Munro

Using works from the National Gallery of Art by Vincent van Gogh, Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, and others, Roxie Munro has created an innovative introduction to art history for young readers that includes a search-and-find game. As an artist contemplates the subject of her next painting, she seeks inspiration from 37 masterpieces at the National Gallery of Art, introducing genres and subjects and showcasing reproductions of great works as she goes. The sweeping painting she creates cleverly incorporates all 37 pieces she has visited. Children can have fun finding the masterpieces in her painting and learn more about the artists in the notes in the back matter.

Editorial Reviews

"A masterpiece of its genre." —Huffington Post

"[Roxie Munro] cleverly brings . . . images together in a detailed, ambitious, culminating ink-and-acrylic cityscape. . . . As readers discover the art embedded in a landscape, they can refer to the smart, concise, marvelously amplifying backmatter." –Kirkus Reviews
