"Although Paul Cezanne respected the Impressionists, he thought too many of their painting were just pretty pictures. He thought his painting could be much more than that."
This biography introduces Cezanne 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 Cezanne, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages each. Ages 4 and up.
