Reviews

wonderful for budding artists of any age
an exceptionally informative art book
Arranged chronologically, each chapter features a single artist who bucked convention... Plentiful reproductions make each chapter visually appealing, and a few activities sprinkled throughout help drive home the importance of the artists' stylistic innovations...The approachable tone, dossier-style pages, and plentiful visual aids will make this an easy pick for students hoping to become better acquainted with famous artists.
in format and editorial approach, [it] is an engaging art history discussion with a contemporary feel that may well capture a young reader's interest....Even the title Splat! has a seductive buzz.
The book is a success for many reasons: it distills the most important life information about the artists, and present their work conditions, techniques, and details worth note....terrific journey through the ages
