Why is Art Full of Naked People?
“Why is art full of naked people?” “Why is some art so weird?” “And why do I have to be quiet in a gallery?”
Why is Art Full of Naked People? answers children’s most common questions about the visual arts, using a fun and accessible approach.
The book is structured around 22 topics, crucial yet sometimes confusing such as Cubism and Contemporary, each addressed over two spreads.
There are questions about how art presents the world, questions on different genres, and questions about the role and value of art in the past and today.
Written with an engaging tone by Susie Hodge, author of more than 70 books, and illustrated with humor by Claire Goble, this is an irreverent but informative tool that enables young people to feel confident asking about art and to begin to enjoy and truly appreciate it.
