This beautiful book brings together thirty major works of art history, from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries, to discover and make one s own through the creative and meditative act of coloring. Each artwork is accompanied by fun and interesting facts that explain the style of each painter and his or her signature techniques and trace the artistic influences and the historical context of their work and time. Painstakingly reproduced with each painting rendered in minute detail, these works invite the colourer to work on the great masterpieces of Western painting. 
Works include Botticelli's Allegory of Spring, Fra Angelico's The Annunciation, Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights, Vermeer's The Music Lesson, Van Gogh's Wheat Field with Cypresses, and Picasso's Portrait of Marie-Therese, to name a few. Upon completion, there is a spot on the back of each colored project for the colourer to add their name to the original artist's, and each piece is on perforated paper, so as an added feature, each reproduced painting is detachable and frameable. 

This beautiful book is handsomely designed with sturdy binding and paper that is perfect for such mediums as colored pencil, pen and ink, and watercolor, and it makes a unique gift for both young and old."
