Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Filled with pop-ups, pullouts, and mobiles, The Art Pack is a completely new way to experience artists' use of color, line, composition, perspective, and optics, as well as a lavishly illustrated introduction to the history of Western art.

With The Art Pack you can:

  • Examine a three-dimensional model of an artist's studio painted by Vermeer
  • See for yourself how an artist solves problems of perspective by using a replica of Alberti's veil and a pop-up viewer
  • Break up light with a camera obscura and a filtered Claude glass
  • Study the combinations of colors that produce shades and tones, by manipulating a real color wheel
  • Hear (on audiocassette) why the world considers great paintings masterpieces, and see them reproduced in full color

    And much more!
