|aIncluding all of the important art movements from Renaissance to Rococo as well as the great artists from these eras, this book takes readers on an international tour of the world's greatest art form.
This engaging guide takes children on an international tour of the world's greatest art, from the first daubs of paint in prehistoric caves to today's performance art. It includes all of the important art movements, from Renaissance to Rococo, as well as the great painters from all these eras. However, the approach is to look at art as an international exchange of ideas, not a straight history of western art. The book includes art from all countries, from aboriginal art to totem poles.
