About This Book
Even though Frederic Remington was a poor student in high school and college, his wildly successful paintings and illustrations vividly portrayed the Wild West for eager Eastern city dwellers who enjoyed his work in "Harper's Weekly."
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. Now printed in a dozen different languages worldwide, and with more than two million copies of the English editions sold, these books have helped countless children around the world "get to know" the world's greatest artists!
