Claude Monet may be famous for his Impressionist paintings, but as a teenager he drew cartoons and caricatures.

However, the text also works as an introduction to art appreciation as it addresses the evolution and aesthetics of Monet 's paintings, discussing some of his major works created between 1859 and 1899. By becoming familiar with the Impressionist movement and its initial reception, kids will learn why and how artistic standards may change over time. Each spread includes eye-catching, captioned color reproductions of one or more of Monet 's relevant artworks. Text boxes expand on historical information, and occasional cartoons offer playful commentary. Back matter includes a glossary, suggestions for further reading, a link to publisher-approved Web sites, and an index.
