Art every day for young and old

Doris Kutschbach, Christiane Weidemann: “365 Tage Kunst entdecken”; Verlag Prestel Junior, Munich; 376 pages; CHF 28.50, EUR 20.

There is an art book that contains an exercise, story or puzzle for every day of the year. Who can find the proverbs in Pieter Brueghel? How many colours are there in a rainbow? Who was The Blue Rider? And who was August Macke? Did he paint in a representational or abstract style? And what is abstract art exactly? Is still life really still? These are just a few of the many questions asked. Readers will discover famous works of art on their journey through the year, including by Gauguin, Sisley, Rousseau, Klimt, Turner, Picasso, Kahlo, Botticelli and many others. The book entitled “365 Tage Kunst entdecken – sehen, rätseln, spielen, malen” has been produced for children (aged six and over) but is also a fascinating and informative read for many older people.
