Swirling, curling brushstrokes. Vivid colors. Thick layers of paint. These are the hallmarks of a painting by Vincent van Gogh, whose work his fellow artist Paul Cézanne once called “that of a madman.” But VAN GOGH AND THE POST-IMPRESSIONISTS FOR KIDS moves beyond the image of the mad pauper to reveal a complex young man who loved nature and reading, spoke four languages, and enjoyed a successful career as a gallery salesman before embarking on studies as a minister and, finally, finding his calling as an artist.

Children will find artistic inspiration as they learn about iconic artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera in these imaginative and colorful activities. Vibrant illustrations throughout the book include Rivera's murals and paintings, Kahlo's dreamscapes and self-portraits, pre-Columbian art and Mexican folk art, as well as many photographs of the two artists. Children will learn that art is more than just pretty pictures; it can be a way to express the artist's innermost feelings, a source of everyday joy and fun, an outlet for political ideas, and an expression of hope for a better world.

A lifelong love of art is one of the greatest gifts an adult can bestow on a child --- and no period of art is better loved or more available to children than Impressionism. MONET AND THE IMPRESSIONISTS FOR KIDS invites children to delight in Cassatt’s mothers and children, Renoir’s dancing couples, and Gaugin’s island scenes.
