Knights of Art: Stories of the Italian Painters
Biographies of eighteen Renaissance artists written for children of all ages (and their parents).
There is a certain delight that only a great picture book can provide.
The combination of a story well-told with illustrations
that captivate readers of all ages brings a unique joy.
No one is too old - or too young - for a good picture book.
They become treasured keepsakes, read time and time again.
They are enjoyable whether they are read aloud, by oneself,
or just paged through to admire the pictures.
Knights of Art will become one of your child's treasured friends.
This new edition of Knights of Art by Catholic children's author Amy Steedman
has been adapted to update some of the language for today's young readers
without sacrificing the charm of the stories.
In addition, over 50 full-color reproductions
have been added to enhance readers' appreciation of each artist's artwork.
From the author's introduction:
...as we grow older and wiser our eyes grow wiser too,
and we learn to know what is good and what is poor.
Only, just as our tongues must be trained to speak, our hands to work,
and our ears to love good music, so our eyes must be taught to see what is beautiful,
or we may perhaps pass it carelessly by, and lose a great joy which might be ours.
So now if you learn something about these great artists and their wonderful pictures, it will help your eyes to grow wise. And some day should you visit sunny Italy, where these men lived and worked, you will feel that they are quite old friends. Their pictures will not only be a delight to your eyes, but will teach your heart something deeper and more wonderful than any words can explain.
Hardcover, 135 pages.
