  • The Story of Joan of Arc (Dover Children's Classics)

    Karton Kapak
    Her story is legendary, but it happens to be true: nineteen-year-old Joan of Arc led armies into battle during the Hundred Years War and helped liberate France from English domination. One of the most famous children's books ever published, this elegant work recounts Joan's wondrous transformation from peasant girl to military commander to Christian saint and martyr. Generations of artists and writers from around the world have drawn inspiration from Joan's life, and she remains among the best-known historical figures of the Middle Ages. Maurice Boutet de Monvel's simple but moving retelling of her story features a series of imaginative illustrations that won the artist international fame. All forty-five of the images from his 1896 deluxe picture book appear here in full color, reflecting the saint's enduring symbolic power as well as her deep humanity. An Introduction by Gerald Gottlieb is included in this edition.

  • Lives of the Great Artists

    Lives of the Great Artists

    Sert Kapak
    An original and delightful approach: imagined visits to artists' studios bring art vividly to life for children.Through the pages of this book, young readers step into a famous artist's studio in medieval Germany, Renaissance Italy, or nineteenth-century France. As the making of a particular work is described, the child smells the paint, hears the chisel chipping into marble, or experiences the wonders of a working printing press. The twenty artists are featured in easy-to-follow chronological order: Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Hans Holbein the Younger, El Greco, Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi, Bernini, Velázquez, Rembrandt, Goya, Jacques-Louis David, Turner, Delacroix, Manet, Monet, and van Gogh. All have remarkable life stories that will entrance any child. Beautifully produced illustrations include an introductory portrait or self-portrait of each artist, followed by reproductions of some of their greatest works. Both paintings and sculptures are represented, offering children an inspiring insight into the visual arts. The artworks—Michelangelo's colossal statue of David, van Gogh's self-portrait with bandaged ear, Velázquez's Las Meninas with little Infanta at center stage, Delacroix's dramatic Liberty Leading the People—have all been chosen specifically to appeal to a young audience. Extended picture captions offer further information, focusing on key details or telling memorable anecdotes, and the book includes a listing of where the artworks can be seen. 120 full-color illustrations
