Summary This book opens up entire historic periods to young readers in double page spreads that are teeming with life and drawn to teach them about artistic traditions. Each spread represents a moment in history,capturing how art was integrated into daily life and illustrating contemporary styles, tools, and mediums. Children will learn about cave paintings and what humans used for light and why they painted so many animals and hunting scenes. They'll find themselves in Ancient Greece, where deities watch over a busy marketplace in front of the Parthenon. A cross-section of a medieval monastery, Leonardo's workshop, and a collection of 19th-century artists painting in nature are just a few more of the examples, which take readers through to the present day.
