All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Gr 4-8-For an older audience than Mike Venezia's "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series (Children's), these titles offer an overview of each man's life and the time period in which he lived. Short sections of text are relieved by photographs, reproductions, and informational sidebars; quotes are interspersed throughout. Most spreads contain a time line, and the concluding section encapsulates all the major events and provides a list of galleries where the artwork can be viewed. Both books attempt to provide a balanced view by discussing not only the artists' contributions to their own and future generations, but also by painting a realistic picture of their character flaws. In keeping with the series title, these volumes devote an equal amount of space to other influential artists and movements. While the reproductions by fellow painters are valuable for comparison of style and subject matter, students will have to read the captions carefully or they might assume that all works are by the featured artist. Other than that, students will find these introductory biographies serviceable for research and interesting for browsing.-Laurie Edwards, West Shore School District, Camp Hill, PA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
