From Raphael to Pablo Picasso to Georgia O'Keeffe, the story of painting involves many artists ... and spans many centuries. Brushes with Greatness explores this story by spotlighting four distinct painting genres, discussing why each began, how its focus has changed over time, and the status it has in the modern world of art. Each beautiful book looks closely at some of the greatest works ever created and explains the evolution of artistic techniques, providing a one-of-a-kind celebration of the human experience in paint.

Review:

These surveys cover a lot of ground about painting genres, including origins and development and practitioners of successive stylistic movements. The popularity and relevance of each form of painting throughout history are discussed. The reproductions are exceedingly fine, and a spacious design complements the content admirably. Vocabulary and concepts should be accessible to students who have already had exposure to art classes. - School Library Journal
