Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This exciting addition to a highly acclaimed series of art titles focuses on how artists use light in their paintings. Showcasing some of the most famous and best-loved artists of all time, the book shows how their paintings use dramatic light, mysterious light, cold light, hot light, dappled light, rainy light, and other forms of light. Gillian Wolfe's interactive technique encourages readers to engage with the works and to think about how they would employ these methods to recreate the same effect themselves. Conveying a substantial amount of information in an accessible and entertaining format, Look! Seeing the Light in Art lets readers of all ages think about what makes great paintings so successful and innovative, while offering them another point of entry to a wide range of famous works of art.

Synopsis:

Beautifully printed on fine, glossy paper, this book introduces young readers to the enduring pleasures of art by showing how its makers use light. Author Gillian Wolfe draws on famous artists from various times and cultures, revealing how they depict dramatic light, mysterious light, cold light, hot light, dappled light, rainy light, light patterns, light shapes, and many more forms of light. Interactive exercises have readers look at a painting, unravel how the light was drawn, and give evidence for the conclusions they draw.
