“Delacroix took what he learned from artists of the past and created his own style. His remarkable paintings led the way to Impressionism and other modern art styles.”
This biography introduces Eugene Delacroix in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Delacroix, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 4 and up.
