The Story of Painting

The Story of Painting - Abigail Wheatley, Janis Riley, Uwe Mayer Sonny and I read this together. I wanted to give him a different angle on world history. It's an Usborne book, and I enjoyed it. It's a terrific introduction to art for beginners of all ages. The only thing that bugs me is that occasionally they'll mention a painting and describe it in great detail rather than showing it, or mention an artist and describe his work rather than showing an example of it.
