Little art history for children and childish souls - here in the fourth edition - gives everyone, young and old, a clear introduction to the history of art - from the cave paintings to Olafur Eliasson. With humorous illustrations and accessible texts, the book provides an overview of both -isms, styles and significant artists.
From prehistoric art, the journey goes through antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to modern art trends, such as Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Surrealism and on to contemporary art.
When the book was first published, it was nominated for Weekendavisen's Literature Prize 2014. This new edition contains more than 30 new drawings and the selection of artists has been expanded with a focus on female artists and a generally greater diversity.
The book also contains a timetable and a glossary, both of which are illustrated.
