Why is art full of naked people & other questions about art by Susie Hodge

Children’s books in English

Description

A thoughtful introduction to art and its interpretation for children, with a sense of humor

Why is art full of naked people? is a disrespectful and informative introduction that asks tricky questions about what makes art art. What is it about all the fruits? Why is art so strange these days? It is about the question of how art views the world, from cave painting to Cubism, from Renaissance to contemporary art, questions about different genres, including still lifes, landscapes and portraits, and questions about the role and value of art in the past and today.

Artists ask questions when they make art, and viewers ask questions when they look at art; this book offers young people an appealing opportunity to ask and answer questions themselves. The book is structured around twenty-two questions, each dealt with on two pages. Through this provocative approach, it provides an introduction to art history and a toolbox that allows young people to confidently ask questions, search for answers, and “read” art for themselves.
