13 Women Artists Children Should Know

This book teaches a young audience about the works and lives of thirteen women artists through informative texts, puzzles, coloring exercises, and fun quizzes. In colorful spreads that feature important works as well as portraits of the artists themselves, children will learn how Sofonisba Anguissola, the Renaissance painter and pupil of Michelangelo, mastered portraiture in the Spanish Court; how the exquisitely wrought illustrations of Maria Sybilla Merian advanced the study of nature in the seventeenth century; and how Mary Cassatt’s paintings depicted the lives of women in the nineteenth century. Modern and contemporary artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Louise Bourgeois, and Cindy Sherman round out this introduction to women artists for children.

  1. Yay for women For so long the artists acknowledged as masters were almost exclusively male. This book presents the fine work of 13 female artists. It shows great examples of highly regarded art. At least every young girl should be exposed to these beautiful pieces of art.

  2. Lovely series about fine art for kids We love this series for our children, the imagery is lovely, and the writing is clear and informative…Is it an art history text book, no, but its fine for younger readers whom are interested in fine art. We have most of the books in the series.

  3. Love these books and especially the size of them Love these books and especially the size of them. Photography of painting is excellent, as is text. Since I teach children how to paint, I want them to know a variety of artists. Price good, good condition. Thanks, Maggie
