Are You an Art Sleuth?

(No reviews yet)

From Monet to Renoir and from Boston to Paris, kids search famous paintings to complete a checklist of things to find in each.

Are You an Art Sleuth? You probably are.

Each  of the twenty full-page paintings, drawn from museums around the world,  are fun, lively, and full of small details, that can be spotted, counted and checked off a list of things to find. Invite children to see  what they can discover when they look at art very closely.

Following  each close-up is an accompanying spread full of fun facts and  activities related to the painting and the story it tells. Prepared by a  member of the education staff of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the  facts and historical bits are specially selected and written to engage  young children and encourage them to come in closer and have fun looking  at art.

Some of the artists included in the book are  Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat, Fra Angelico, Vittore Carpaccio,  William Hogarth, Quentin Metsys, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, William  Holman Hunt, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Breughel, and Henri Rousseau.
