Both artists and viewers ask questions when engaging with art. This thought-provoking children's book offers a compelling approach for children to begin independently questioning and responding to artistic concepts.
Why is art full of naked people? presents 22 questions and their answers, with each question being addressed through two pages. The first page delves into the question and features a full-bleed image of a significant artwork to analyse. The following page presents a compilation of artworks throughout history that relate to the topic, showcasing the various directions art can take. The writing style is contemporary yet professional, avoiding flippancy.
Why is art full of naked people? Why is everything flat? What's with all the fruit? Why is art so expensive? And why do people bother with art at all? are just some of the questions examined in this gently provocative book not just for kids but all inquisitive art lovers.
Perfect for children aged 7-12 years.
