"Vermeer chose familiar, everyday subjects. His paintings usually show one or two people in a room, with light coming in through a window."
This biography introduces Johannes Vermeer 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 Vermeer, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 4 and up.
