About This Book

From Nefertiti to Andy Warhol, children will respond with wonder and curiosity to this introduction to portraiture in art through the ages. From the time they are babies, all children are fascinated by the human face. Responding to this inherent interest, this book explores all sorts of portraits by artists ranging from Leonardo da Vinci to Salvador Dalí. Ancient sculptures depicting Egyptian royalty, engravings by Dürer, Botticelli's paintings of women, and abstract works are presented in full color and with the kind of detail kids love. The book also teaches young readers how to paint a face, draw a cartoon, and create a face-themed collage. Young readers will learn about self-portraits, double portraits, and masks and challenge themselves with quizzes, puzzles, and optical illusions. Along the way they'll develop an understanding of how and why artists continue to celebrate the human face.
