Recently I posted my delight in American master Walter Anderson, whom I
"discovered" during a family excursion to Books-a-Million (the cover of the
book sang to me from the shelf.). :-) Thank you to those that responded to
me, on and off list. It's nice to know that others are aware of this amazing
I have since ordered a number of Walter Anderson books from Amazon (and plan
to ask for even more as Christmas gifts), and am thoroughly delighted with
everything. Here is an artist whose work I can gaze upon and read about for
days upon end! I am especially delighted to have in my possession now
"Walter Anderson for Children"--a book developed to introduce the children
to his work.
I can't wait to have to the time to READ, READ, READ everything I can about
this man and his work!
Well, within the past hour, I have "discovered" another artist, an Austrian
this time, whom I am eager to learn more about, and I wonder if any of you
have included him in your lessons:
if you go to postershop.com and search for Hundertwasser, you will see many
images of his work.
Great work, colorful and full of pattern, great architecture, too, and

develop some really neat lessons around this man and his work.
And yet another "new-to-me" artist... an Australian, this time:
I think children will relate to his work.
Bright, vibrant work, reminds me of Matisse. There is a neat interactive
websight that allows you to view images of his work and hear him discuss it:
