Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ever wish the Mona Lisa was blonde? Or that the Blue Boy was yellow? Now they can be! In this fun and information-packed coloring book, readers will find out why famous paintings were created the way they were. From there it's your choice — replicate the colors faithfully or change them at your fancy! Either way, you're learning more about art history than you realize in the process.

Review:

"It's not often that a coloring book gets reviewed on the book pages, but this...is outstanding." Philadelphia Inquirer

Synopsis:

An artistic adventure awaits you! Masterpieces leads you on a guided tour of sixty paintings by some of the world's best artists.

Synopsis:

An artistic adventure awaits you! Masterpieces leads you on a guided tour of sixty paintings by some of the world's best artists. Each painting has been carefully redrawn and is ready to color--with crayons, colored pencils, markets, and your imagination. Accompanying each painting is a story that describes it and introduces you to the artist. See the world through the eyes of the great painters as you read these tales and color these pictures of kings, gypsies, flowers, parties, dancers, heroes, and more. Here are just some of the things you can do inside Masterpieces: Visit exotic Tahiti with Gaugin Choose a new suite for Gainsborough's Blue Boy Take a dance lesson with Degas See Venus, the goddess of love, rising from the ocean Watch the stars with van Gogh Join Renoir for a boating party Fight for liberty with Delacroix Meet Whistler's mother Spend a Sunday afternoon in the park with Seurat Go bird-watching with Audubon These priceless art treasures represent more than five hundred years of painting. Now you can color them yourself to create new masterpieces of your own.

Synopsis:

This fact-filled coloring book for children and adults allows the recreation of timeless works of art, and features a ready-to-color 17-inch by 22-inch poster to hang on the wall. Illustrations.
