Did you know that the renowned Renaissance artist Botticelli was a goldsmith before he became a painter? Did you know that the famous cave paintings in Lascaux, France were discovered by four young boys?

Cave Paintings to Picasso: The Inside Scoop on 50 Art Masterpieces by Henry Sayre features art from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. It is organized chronologically, and includes visual timelines and a glossary of art terms. Although this new edition is cataloged in children's non-fiction, it is full of quick facts about artists and their works for the enjoyment of readers and artists of all ages.

This book has been donated by the Emily Furguson and Kurt Kaufman family and is located in the children's new book area.
