Summary "For the past eleven years the National Gallery has issued a family quarterly that included an "Inside Scoop" featuring artists and works from the museum. This book is a collection of those "Scoops"--Updated, revised, and expanded. The book is grouped around seven general themes and highlights works from different time periods to encourage comparisons among them. We hope the book will inspire children to explore and develop "an eye for art.""-- Provided by publisher.
