Disney Looking at Paintings by Erika Langmuir

Book Description

Explore the Mona Lisa's smile, Titian's noises, Duccio's artistic omelet, a Jackson Pollock splash, a king's portrait, an entire battle, saints and sinners, knights and peasants, motorcars and animals; and paintings on every conceivable surface -- walls, wood panels, cloth, glass, metal, bark, and leather. Follow Mickey and his friends through this most magical of worlds as they show us how to look at, understand, and enjoy the works of the greatest artist. This unique introduction to the techniques and history of painting takes the young reader through more than 15,000 years of art, from cave painters to Picasso. The result of a collaboration between one of the most important art museums in the world, London's National Gallery, and the best Disney graphic artists, Looking at Paintings is a family reference book to be treasured by children from 8 to 88 years old. This light hearted yet utterly serious celebration of our universal heritage has more than 400 color illustrations, including 24 pages of comic histories and over 200 illustrations of paintings and details, providing the most approachable introduction to the history of painting ever written. DisneyHand, worldwide outreach for The Walt Disney Company, and Disney Publishing Worldwide are delighted to provide a web based Teacher's Resource Guide for Looking at Paintings with classroom activity and project suggestions for students in grades 2-4 and grades 5-6 that correspond with Looking at Paintings."

Books By Author Erika Langmuir

Closer Look by Erika Langmuir Closer Look, Paperback (November 2010)

Examines the special fascination of still life, and what distinguishes it from other categories of painting. The author discusses its evolution from the trompe l'oeil wall paintings of antiquity, through its revival in the age of Caravaggio and Velazquez, and again in the works of Cezanne and Picasso.

Closer Look: Allegory by Erika Langmuir Closer Look: Allegory, Paperback (May 2010)

When we say that 'Love is blind' or 'Time flies' - making concepts sound like living beings - we are using the language of allegory. Painters have long relied on allegory to create 'message pictures'. This guide helps readers understand the language of allegory within Western painting - be it from the National Gallery or from other collections.

Closer Look: Angels by Erika Langmuir Closer Look: Angels, Paperback (May 2010)

Angels are an integral part of Christian art, performing a multitude of roles. Massed together they may form a heavenly choir, glorifying the Virgin Mary or commenting on the surrounding action. This guide helps readers identify angels and their significance in a painting - be it from the National Gallery or from other collections.

Closer Look: Saints by Erika Langmuir Closer Look: Saints, Paperback (November 2009)

A guide that helps readers identify saints and their significance in a painting - be it from the National Gallery or from other collections. It explains, through the National Gallery's collection of religious images, the significance of saints and their role in the history of European painting as well as different types of saints.
