Description

By Susie Hodge

Why is Art Full of Naked People? is an irreverent and  informative primer that asks tricky questions about what makes art art.  What is with all the fruit? Why is art so weird nowadays? There are  questions about how art views the world, from cave paintings through to  Cubism, from the Renaissance to contemporary art, questions about  different genres, including still-life painting, landscapes and  portraits, and questions about the role and value of art in the past and  today.Artists ask questions when they make art and viewers ask  questions when they look at art; this book provides an engaging way for  young people to explore asking and answering questions for themselves.  The book is structured around twenty-two questions, each one tackled  over two spreads. Through this provocative approach it offers an  introduction to art history and a toolkit to enable young people to feel  confident asking questions, searching for answers, and “reading” art  for themselves.
