From Bosch to Basquiat, this richly illustrated introduction to art though the centuries introduces young readers to a hugely diverse collection of works, genres, and genius.

Brimming with color, information, and inspiration, this beautifully designed volume spans five centuries, highlighting forty-two of the most influential and important artists of all time. Arranged chronologically, it includes multi-page spreads that feature brief biographies, career highlights, and luminous reproductions of major works of each artist. In addition to widely known figures such as Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Picasso, young readers will learn about women artists such as Sofonisba Anguissola, Georgia O’Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, and Yayoi Kusama, and artists of color such as Jacob Lawrence, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. The wide-ranging selection also includes a variety of genres: including graffiti artist Banksy, photographer Cindy Sherman, Op-artist Bridget Riley, scientific illustrator Maria Sibylla Merian, and sculptor Louise Bourgeois. Running across the bottom of each page, a timeline highlighting worldshaping events helps contextualize the artists’ achievements on a global scale. A perfect introduction to great art, this book invites young readers to explore the rich tapestry of history’s greatest artists and find inspiration in their stories.
