    Pictures were partially too small, thin book.

    Written simply enough for a child, but very enjoyable for an adult Great pictures help you visualize the nuances of his artwork in detail enabling the budding artist to copy and develop the techniques and style of this master through studying the beautiful photos of his artwork.
