Van Gogh for KidsBoard Book - 1996
Vincent van Gogh (1853-90),considered the greatest Dutch painter after Rembrandt, inspired theExpressionist school of painting. Given the number of his paintings that are nowwell-known masterpieces, it is staggering to think that his painting careerlasted only ten years. His fame is enhanced by his many haunting self-portraitsand his suicide at age thirty-seven.Van Gogh for Kidscontains ten of his most familiar images, including The Starry Night, Bedroomat Arles , and Vase with Fourteen Sunflowers , in a toddler-friendlyboard-book format.About the EditorMargaret E. Hyde was inspired tocreate the Great Art for Kids books when she could not find age-appropriate artbooks for her own little girl. As an alternative to having her expensivecoffee-table books drooled on, Mrs. Hyde designed these durable board books tointroduce young children to the great painters. A native of Memphis, Mrs. Hydenow lives in Santa Monica with her family.Other titles in the Great Art forKids Series are Cassatt for Kids, Impressionists for Kids, Matisse forKids, Picasso for Kids, and Renoir for Kids ($8.95 each),all available from Pelican.
