Synopsis: The Art for Young People Series is a wonderful way for children to get to know the people behind the paintings. Through colorful narrative, pictures, maps, photos, and more, kids will discover that art is an exciting and interesting way to explore the world.
Claude Monet is remembered for painting his "impression" of a scene, from the entrancing blues and greens of lily pads in a pond to glowing haystacks in a field. He spent years studying the effects of light and color as the days and seasons passed, and is thought of as the father of the "Impressionist" movement. Here's a chance for kids to meet the people who taught Monet--Eugene Boudin, Johan Jongkind, and others--and see how their paintings are similar to his own. Follow him from the harbor in Le Havre to the Gare St. Lazare train station in Paris, to his home in Giverny, and see how he captured each of these places in his paintings. Find out what it was like to be an artist in Paris during the late 1800s, and mingle with Monet and others like Renoir and Pissarro at their studios. Kids will see many of Monet's pictures, meet his family and friends, and much more through these colorfully narrated and illustrated pages.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6?These series entries look at the lives and work of two very different men. Both accounts are brief and straightforward. The artists' biographies are examined in the context of the time in which they lived, and their work is compared to that of their contemporaries. Full-color illustrations and reproductions of paintings are clear and well chosen. Black-and-white photographs and reproductions of sketches are included as well. Captions point out the things that make each work special?line, color, brushstrokes. Short glossaries define terms, but no bibliographies are provided. Useful additions, though not as complete as the "Eyewitness Art" books.?Susan Chmurynsky, East Kentwood Freshman Campus, MI
