This exciting addition to a highly-acclaimed series of art titles focuses on how artists use light in their paintings. This book uses some of the most famous and best-loved artists of all time to show how their paintings reflect dramatic light, mysterious light, cold light, hot light, dappled light, rainy light, light patterns, light shapes and other forms of light.
Gillian Wolfe’s groundbreaking series offers young readers another way in to a wide range of famous works of art. Her interactive technique encourages readers to engage with the works of art, and to think about how they would employ these methods to recreate the same effect themselves. She conveys a huge amount of information in an accessible and entertaining format, that enables readers of all ages to think about what makes these paintings so successful and innovative.
Gillian’s profound contribution is reflected in her being awarded both an MBE and a CBE for her services to Education and Arts.
