About This Book
Giotto di Bondone's realistic paintings broke away from the rules for artists of his day. This influential artist's frescoes can still be seen on church walls in Italy.
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!
