There is a little book carried in most catalogs right now called Famous
artists that does just what you have asked. I enjoy Scholatic Magazine, also
Artsfacts. It is relatively new little publlication for elementary and very
reasonably priced I will send the address on another day. I have the info at
school Susan in Ohio. I have another p[lublication called Reading Pictures
which I have used. -----Original Message-----
