MoMA Visual Basics (HC)
By Philip Yenawine

By Philip Yenawine

The author created these books on modern art to help very young people learn the basic vocabulary used by artists, a sort of ABC of art. Parents and teachers play a key role in this learning process by encouraging careful, thoughtful looking.

In Shapes Yenawine asks questions like, "Can you find buildings? And roofs?" while looking at a Picasso study. Other Shapes artists include Seurat, Gauguin, Malevich, Mondrian, Arp, Klee, Smith and Dali. Places includes 21 artworks by artists such as Hopper, Munch, Klimt, and Bonnard, while People highlights works by Balthus, Degas, Freud, Cezanne, Neel and Rivera. And Lines features 16 works by van Gogh, Matisse, Pollock, Morandi, O'Keeffe and others. Each volume comes with an illustrated summary of artworks.
