Anholt's illustrations ingeniously match the artist's unique style.
This book would be invaluable in bringing the artist alive for the pupils.
As a general introduction to the artist or as a non-fiction book to read for pleasure it will bring colour to any library.
What is particularly appealing about the Anholt series of books about famous artists, of which this is the sixth, is that each one is based on a real-life encounter between a child and the artist featured. The work of Matisse is particularly useful in the visual arts with children, as its central message is that art can be created using a wide variety of materials and can result from exploring and experimenting with elements as simple as colour and shape. I would recommend this book, and the others in the series, for use with children in both middle and senior classes in primary schools.
