Beautifully printed on fine, glossy paper, this book introduces young readers to the enduring pleasures of art by showing how its makers use light. Author Gillian Wolfe draws on famous artists from various times and cultures, revealing how they depict dramatic light, mysterious light, cold light, hot light, dappled light, rainy light, light patterns, light shapes, and many more forms of light. Interactive exercises have readers look at a painting, unravel how the light was drawn, and give evidence for the conclusions they draw.
