Artists have so many clever ways of showing you new and different ways of seeing. How do they show high speed movement? What do they do to create 3D effects? How do they create portraits whose eyes follow you around the room? How do they make textures that you want to reach out and touch?

This fifth book of an outstanding, award-winning series for children on art explores all the techniques used by artists to tease, puzzle or thrill you. Paintings and other images by artists such as Escher, Hockney, Chagall, Pollock, Magritte, Durer, Seurat, Riley, Dali, and Van Dyck vividly illustrate effects such as tromp l'oeil, surrealism, creating texture, theatrical use of light, multiple viewpoints, colour effects such as pointilism, visual suggestion and many more tricks of the trade.

The author, Gillian Wolfe is Director of Learning and Public Affairs at Dulwich Picture Gallery (one of the most renowned private collections in the UK).
