Horn Book Review

This series contextualizes the artists works by placing them alongside those of their contemporaries and within their historical milieus. Features include "How Were They Made?" which explains media and techniques, and "What Do the Paintings Say?" which discusses symbolism and iconography. Cramped design, including small reproductions and teeny-tiny typeface, compromise the thoughtful texts. There are four other fall 2010 books in this series. Reading list, timeline, websites.
