Based on a popular game, Master-Pieces encourages kids to look closely at art, for a fun spin on art appreciation
Mix and match pieces of the world’s greatest artworks—from Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa to Gilbert Stuart’s George Washington—to create new portraits. Flip Flora’s pretty hairstyle on the head of a Kabuki actor. Top Frida Kahlo with the straw hat of Vincent van Gogh.
Printed on heavy board and laminated, Master-Pieces will stand up to the most enthusiastic flipping, at home or in the classroom. Including full images with captions, short descriptions of the works, and artists’ biographies, it features artworks from the world’s most magnificent public collections, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Louvre. With one thousand possible portrait combinations, Master-Pieces will have children looking at art in a whole new way.
