Paul Getty Museum. Details from twenty-six different paintings by artists including Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, and Edgar Degas provide the objects corresponding with each letter of the alphabet. The book also contains reproductions of all the paintings from which the details were selected.

This charming book provides a unique opportunity to help children learn the ABC's while teaching them to look closely at great works of art. For ages three and up.
