Open Access Graduate Research Paper
"An ABC of Painters" is an alphabet book of painters who lived from the 1300s through the 1700s, written for the purpose of introducing children and adults to the painters and their paintings. Each alphabet letter introduces a different artist including facts about his life and information about one of his paintings. The text is written for the comprehension of eight to twelve year old children. The words and painting work together to give a full picture of the different artists and their lives and works. The book is designed to help children become interested in reading and in learning about painters and painting. There is little information about artists written especially for children, even though art history has become more important in school curriculum. This research project fills at least part of that void.
