"There is really is no such thing as Art.  There are only artists."
~Sir Ernst Gombrich~

My artistic eyesight has been heightened through the exploration of this book!

Feel intimidated by the art world?  Gombrich will most certainly put you at ease!  The Story of Art, published in 1950, was written for teens or newcomers to the world of art in "plain language". 

I have to admit that I have not read this book cover to cover.  It started out that way, but I was quickly distracted digging up more info on each artists.  This one is to be bitten off in small pieces and enjoyed.  Sometimes I just pick it up and flip to a page and start right in.  I am always fascinated!  I have successfully used this book for Family Home Evening activities.  Here is one FHE activity.

~Happy Reading~
