From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up-These repackaged versions of Creative's "Movements in Art" (2009) series feature new designs, but no changes have been made to the text. The positives include sophisticated writing, solid information (though not for novices), excellent reproductions, and colorful design. Each slim volume starts off with the same identical introduction. Historical and social context is provided, and the authors describe developments leading up to the movement and how these styles influenced later artists and techniques. However, in some cases, details of the artwork get lost in gutters. Works of art aren't always identified, and their locations are rarely cited. Too often, important pieces mentioned aren't depicted. Occasionally, sidebars highlighting art and sites, historical figures, and important events appear on out-of-context pages. Some of the definitions in the glossary are questionable, and the short bibliography contains outdated sources. VERDICT Additional for public and school libraries; perhaps refreshers for teachers before they introduce the periods and styles in art appreciation or history units.α(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist:

The term Impressionist started as a critic’s insult, meaning art that offered mere impressions of the world rather than deep, serious renderings. The groundbreaking artists who adopted the title, though, focused on sensory experiences and the celebration of color and light in a fleeting moment. This handsome large title in the Movements in Art series discusses the leading Impressionist artists, their subjects, and their techniques. Quality reproductions of many paintings and occasional sepia photos of the painters and their settings illustrate the detailed, informative overview. Teens may start off browsing through the pictures, but many will be drawn in to read the full, accessible text that discusses individual works as well as the lasting changes that the artists brought to modern art. Students will want to refer to the back matter, which includes a bibliography, glossary, and time line. Grades 6-9. --Hazel Rochman
