A Fun Art Book Series

on

Over the last two years, I’ve been ordering a really fun art book series, This is <insert artist name>. The series is published by Laurence King.

This is . . .

Artists in this series:

Caravaggio
Dali
Gauguin
Goya
Matisse
Rembrandt
Pollock
Van Gogh
Warhol

What I find so great about these are the small size, and use a graphic novel approach to present the information. A new idea or point of his career is discussed on 1-2 pages, making it easy to work through in small segments. I’ve been able to recommend this series to art teachers, who like the publication for their students who may not have interest in reading a heavy, academic heavy text.

Take the time to go through this series, and enjoy the illustrations, colour reproductions, and photographs where possible of the time of the artist.
