    A History of Pictures for Children

     David Hockney & Martin Gayfor

    Illustrated by Rose Blake

    Translated from English by Karina Lampsa

     

    Through an exciting journey in the world of pictures children learn about art history, from early art drawn on cave walls to the images we make today on our computers and phone cameras.

    The guide in this journey is world-famous artist David Hockney. Using as a starting-point the works of art depicted in the book, he discusses with author Martin Gayford about the creation of pictures and their evolution over time. Rose Blake’s playful, minimalistic illustrations offer a third dimension to this talk. The edition is supplemented by an illustrated timeline of inventions, bibliography and index.

    Though mainly addressed to children, the book will appeal to readers of all ages.
