for What a Masterpiece! by Riccardo Guasco
In this wordless picture book, the Western world's greatest art is closer than you expect. A boy's daily routines bring him face-to-face with Escher's winding stairs, Banksy's balloon girl, Picasso's dancing fauns, and many more familiar sights. Maybe the boy's bedroom looks a little like Van Gogh's. Maybe that apple looks a bit like Magritte's. And maybe another masterpiece is on its way...
A celebration of creativity across the centuries, What a Masterpiece! will inspire young artists to find wonder in their everyday lives. An art index after the story helps readers identify the cultural treasures behind the illustrations.
