This sequel to the best-selling Masterpieces Up Close is another fun, interactive book that introduces works of art from museums around the world across different eras and styles, including an ancient Egyptian papyrus, a Byzantine mosaic, Renaissance frescoes, a medieval European tapestry, Arabic and Aztec manuscripts, Japanese woodblock prints, and impressionist, surrealist, and cubist paintings. Full-color reproductions of twenty-three famous works of art provide a colorful hunting ground for over two hundred close-up details. Lift-the-flap keys at the end of the book provide intriguing facts about the works and the artists who created them. Young readers will learn how artistic expression has developed through the centuries and discover how looking at familiar images up close reveals new insights into the world of art.
