The art not silly : for 7 to 107 year olds - Pauline Pons, Pascal LemaîtreSold by Mucem Museum
An introduction to the history of art, from prehistory to contemporary times, based on a series of questions that children may ask themselves about the beauty of a work, the usefulness of a museum or the definition of a work of art. The different artistic currents and techniques are presented, as well as the main works and great artists.
What the publisher says:
"What is the purpose of art? Why go to the museum? How much does a painting cost?..."
The works that children discover in museums never cease to amaze them!... Who decreed that they were beautiful? Why do we exhibit them even if they are broken?
Produced with the Musée d'Orsay, and written by an art historian, the book answers many questions about sculpture, painting, but also architecture or photography...
It addresses the different artistic currents and techniques, and highlights masterpieces and great artists.
The illustrations by Pascal Lemaître, full of poetry and humor, and the reproductions of works of art take the reader on a walk through the heart of a giant museum that opens in prehistory and ends today!
A dive into the heart of art for 7 to 107 year olds!
