About the Book

37 masterpieces inspire an artist in this introduction to art history that includes a search-and-find game.

Using works from the National Gallery of Art by Vincent Van Gogh, Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, and others, Roxie Munro has created an innovative introduction to art. As an artist contemplates her next painting, she introduces genres and subjects, showcasing reproductions of great works. The sweeping painting she creates cleverly incorporates all 37 pieces she has considered.

Children can have fun finding the masterpieces in her painting and learn more about the artists in the notes in the back matter.


★★★ THE REVIEWS ARE IN! ★★★


"Recommended as a versatile introduction to fine art for elementary schoolers."—School Library Journal

"A masterpiece of its genre."—Huff Post

"[Roxie Munro] cleverly brings . . . images together in a detailed, ambitious, culminating ink-and-acrylic cityscape. As readers discover the art embedded in a landscape, they can refer to the smart, concise, marvelously amplifying backmatter. A handsome and satisfying companion to Market Maze (2015)."—Kirkus Reviews

"Aspiring artists will be captivated."—Booklist
