Silke  Vry - 13 Art Illusions Children Should Know

Children love to be fooled – and artists are some of the greatest tricksters around. This collection features artworks that incorporate a variety of methods for tricking our eyes. Lively texts explain the methods the artists employed to shape their illusions. Reproduced in vibrant colour, these pieces of ripe fruit, blooming flowers, a half-opened curtain, flickering lines, and impossible worlds come alive on the page, providing hours of absorbing fun as readers are drawn into the stories behind their creation. These great illusions are a terrific way to introduce children to the world of art.
