Great Artists: Sets 1 – 2

Some works of art are so recognizable now that it's easy to forget that they weren't always seen as such when they were created. This series is an engaging look into the remarkable creations and fascinating biographies of artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt, and Diego Velázquez. Readers first learn about the events in the artists' lives that influenced the work they did. Then they examine each artist's most celebrated pieces with particular attention to themes and techniques. Finally, readers are encouraged to pick up their brushes and create their own work of art in the style of the artist.

• Primary sources include both paintings and artists' quotations
• Fact boxes, timelines, and labeled artwork make this an accessible introduction to the art world
• Biographies and books about the arts are cited as valuable informational texts in the Common Core English Language Arts Standards
