Faith Ringgold

by Mike Venezia Illustrated by Mike Venezia
Faith Ringgold's artwork is greatly influenced by her experiences as an African American woman. Learn about her life, her artwork, and how she struggled to overcome adversity in this book from the "Getting To Know The World's Greatest Artists" series.
These books are without a doubt the definitive—and most entertaining—biographies of artists for young readers. Author/artist Mike Venezia provides hilarious, cartoon-style illustrations to complement his easy-to-read text and full-color reproductions of the masters' artwork.
